Commissioner Gabriel: European innovation agenda for the next generation of innovators
An innovative start-up, a large company and a supportive regulatory environment: the development of the mRNA vaccines to fight the Covid19 pandemic is a good example of such deep tech innovation in Europe, she said during her visit yesterday: "We need a lot more of that."
Innovation agenda delivers concrete results
At the meeting of acatech - the German Academy of Science and Engineering - the Commissioner highlighted the various flagship initiatives of the European Innovation Agenda. She said it was important that different strategies intertwined: "We need to support universities and colleges to become actors in their local innovation ecosystems." The EU also provides financial support for this through various programmes such as Erasmus+ and Horizon Europe. In the discussion with the innovation experts, the Commissioner stressed: "The European Innovation Agenda will bring concrete results, and it is my job to ensure that!"
"Be bold, dare to do something, keep your critical thinking - that's how we can transform the European Innovation Agenda together from a nice document into something useful for those who need it," said the Commissioner at the Start For Future Summit. There, she discussed with a large number of young innovators how the EU can help in concrete terms. The Commissioner announced how concrete measures from the strategy will be implemented: with initiatives to promote European talent and the legal act on listing planned for December.
