Presidential session

Gold Hall, 10/03/2014 (10:00-10:45)

The Innovation Union is setting the guiding policy frame for competitiveness targeting smart, sustainable growth in Europe and it is broadly on track to deliver its goals for 2020. The Innovation Union also announces that the Commission will convene an Innovation Convention to discuss the state of the Innovation Union across disciplines. The first Innovation Convention took place in December 2011 and gathered some 1200 participants. It was widely recognised as the major innovation-related event in Europe.

European Commission President José Barroso will open the second edition of the Innovation Convention with the State of the Innovation Union address followed by opening remarks of Mark Rutte, Prime Minister of the Netherlands.

The session will feature José Manuel BARROSO, President of the European Commission, Portugal and Mark RUTTE, Prime Minister and Minister of General Affairs of the Netherlands.
