12th edition of the European Innovation Summit.
For over a decade, K4l has stressed the importance of innovation to solve major problems.
Now more than ever, we not only need a robust innovation policy, but a set of policies that rely on innovation in all domains. The Summit in December entitled “Towards a European Innovation Area” will discuss how research and innovation stakeholders will support the green and digital transition in joining forces from across Europe.
The programme of the 12 EIS is covering a broad range of topics that relate to major recently launched policy initiatives and the imminent launch of Horizon Europe:
- Innovation Policy
- Horizon Europe / European Partnerships
- AI & Big Data for Innovation
- Greening Europe
- Digital Transition
- Women Investors and Women-Led Startups
In addition to Plenary sessions, there will be panel discussions organised by European Partnerships, and more specific topics will be addressed on the initiative of K4I members and summit partners.
We are happy to announce that Ms Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, confirmed her participation for the Opening Ceremony on 7 December, 18:00.
In a letter to K4I, Commission President Ursula von der Leyen wrote “The European Commission is eager to work with the Knowledge4Innovation Forum on strategic areas, where research and innovation acts as a powerful catalyst of Europe’s recovery.”
A long list of Members of the European Parliament have already committed to host events and participate in the debates.
Do not hesitate to contact us in case you would like to get actively involved in the summit programme.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to our discussions about accelerating innovation across Europe!
