4th European Innovation Summit “Building bridges - Creating Synergies”
9-10 October 2012, European Parliament, Brussels
Knowledge4Innovation will be organising the 4th European Innovation Summit in the European Parliament in Brussels. Under the motto “Building bridges – Creating Synergies”, this year’s debates relate to policies relevant for innovation and that are currently under review by the European Parliament, including Horizon2020, Cohesion Policy, COSME and the MFF.
The summit features an opening reception with the Innovation Commissioner Geoghegan-Quinn, several thematic sessions throughout two days, breakfasts, lunches and dinner debates, as well as an exhibition in one of the most visible locations of the European Parliament. In addition, the “Innovative Europe Reality Check” provides an opportunity for innovation practitioners to describe online their major challenges and express ideas on how to improve the framework conditions for innovation.
