European Committee of the Regions and the
European Commission are pleased to invite you to this
seminar organised in the framework of their
Knowledge Exchange Platform.
The event will take place on
Thursday, 28 September 2023, from 14:30 to 18:00, physically at the CoR,
in Brussels. You can see the agenda
here. It will be held back-to-back with the Science meets Regions final event happening just before at the Committee.
The objective of the renewed
KEP 2.0 initiative is to enable the exchange of new R&I solutions and best practices, by organizing horizontal seminars in Brussels, and promoting so-called peer-to-peer and showcasing events on the ground. It allows for an efficient dialogue and transfer of expertise on R&I issues with European cities and regions, businesses, universities and citizens.
On 5 July last year, the European Commission adopted a long-awaited Communication laying out the New European Innovation Agenda, articulating a comprehensive European strategy for innovation for the first time since the Innovation Union in 2010. This policy initiative aims at reinforcing European leadership in deep-tech innovations that accelerate the green and digital transitions, by bringing together policies, investments, and instruments in a coherent joined-up approach to drive systemic change and impact. Its dedicated flagship on accelerating and strengthening innovation in European Innovation Ecosystems focuses on creating the connected Regional Innovation Valleys across the EU, by building on strategic areas of regional strength and specialisation, in support of key EU priorities.
This thematic seminar, jointly organised between the European Commission and the European Committee of the Regions, will focus on the regional and local dimension of the New European Innovation Agenda, including the opportunities for Regional Innovation Valleys.
