Boosting Innovation for EU industry: Industrial Infrastructures and Open Innovation Ecosystems – 3 April 2019, Ljubljana, Slovenia
Companies across the EU need access to open innovation ecosystems, to assist upscaling new technologies, product testing and validation support.
The cost of such open innovation ecosystems and their associated infrastructures can be very high, especially for SMEs and start-ups. Therefore the European Commission, Member States and regions, all collaborate on various open innovation tools to support fast-cycle development of new products and facilitation of market uptake: Digital Innovation Hubs, Open Innovation Test Beds, Centres for Key Enabling Technologies (KETs and regional centres), among others.
The Slovenian Business & Research Association and the European Commission, DG Research and Innovation are honored to invite you to the Boosting Innovation for EU Industry conference. Discussions will focus on future actions targeting a pan-European industrial ecosystem. The conference will showcase several excellent examples of innovation support with special emphasis on Slovenia and the wider region, provide feedback to high level EU representatives and discuss the needs of the local industry.
