On 5-6 December 2011, the European Commission is holding its first Innovation Convention following the adoption of the Innovation Union Flagship initiative in October 2010. This major event will gather more than 1200 participants involved in the innovation chain, including high-level policy makers, leading CEOs, deans of universities and research centres, bankers, venture capitalists, top researchers and innovators. This call for exhibition proposals is open to any organisation involved in a project funded by the EU's Framework programmes for Research (FP) or the EU's Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP). The project should have attained a certain level of maturity (for example be in a phase where it can be developed further thanks to patenting, venture capital etc). More importantly, it should be able to demonstrate some results with concrete examples. The NEW deadline for submission of exhibition proposals is 7 September 2011
