6 May 2015, Committee of the Regions, Brussels

The workshop aims to encourage active dialogue and exchange of ideas between the Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) -H2020 stakeholders and the national/regional authorities that apply for structural funds, and :   


1) Raise awareness on KETs (advanced materials, nanotechnology, micro- and nano-electronics, industrial biotechnology, photonics, and advanced manufacturing systems) as drivers for industrial competitiveness in regions.   2) Stimulate interaction to enhance synergies, by engaging participants in discussions during the parallel sessions.  3)  Showcase examples of regions that have identified KETs as priorities and promote interregional cooperation.  4) Explore how the new instruments help deal with current problems and limitations;   5) Identify the main barriers for addressing synergies from part of H2020 stakeholders and national and regional authorities.
