The event is co-organised by the European Commission, through DG CONNECT and DG RTD, together with the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union. The conference will bring on the stage debates about how to bridge the gap from idea to investable project, how to support breakthrough innovations and the scale up potential with high risk for private investors.
The conference will focus on three overarching topics for the next EU Research and Innovation Programme (2021-2027) – Horizon Europe:
- Financial Instruments
The event offers a timely opportunity to debate at high level the grand challenges of the new European Programme on connecting science to technology and innovation, as well as to raise the political profile of the European Innovation Council. Moreover, it will provide an opportunity to discuss about the continuation of previous European programmes supporting innovation and technology after several decades of success.
