Innovative Europe: The Way Forward. Taking Stock and Thinking Ahead

18 February 2020, Brusels, Belgium

Climate change, digital revolution and demographic trends are transforming European economy and society, defining huge challenges for the industrial ecosystem and deeply affecting citizens’ way of life. The next five years will be crucial to set the Europe’s role on the world stage: as outlined in the President von der Leyen’s Political Guidelines, the new EU leadership is called to adopt and implement a wide set of very ambitious policies, that will enable the EU to lead the transition to a healthy planet and a new digital world and to remain innovative and competitive at global level.

I-Com will organise on February 18 (h14:30 – h18:45) at The Office in Brussels (Rue dArlon 80) the Public Conference “Innovative Europe: The Way Forward. Taking Stock and Thinking Ahead”.

The event will give the floor to EU institutions, trade and consumer associations, companies, civil society organisations and other relevant stakeholders to discuss the future agenda for an Innovative Europe through three different panels – Setting the Future Digital agendaConnecting EU Health and Industrial Policies and Towards the European Green Deal – designed to reflect the main political guidelines of the new European Commission.

Innovative Europe: The Way Forward is the final event of the I-Com 2019/2020 Brussels Flagship Initiative Back to the Future. Therefore, the conference will be the occasion to present the I-Com Blueprint and a related Manifesto, which finally aim at informing the new EU institutions about the state of innovation in three sectors (Digital, Healthcare and Energy & Mobility) and making recommendations for the new institutional cycle to contribute to a social and economic agenda oriented to innovation.
