About 9th European Innovation Summit

The 9th European Innovation Summit will take place during the week 27.11 - 1.12 2017 in and around the European Parliament in Brussels in the context of the first ever European Innovation Week.
2017 is an important year for the future of innovation in Europe and preparations for the next Multiannual Financial Framework have started, part of which is the next Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. At the same time, it is an opportunity to reflect on how we can innovate more intelligently by making better use of available knowledge and resources. On the verticals, the debates must focus on concrete solutions addressing major challenges for which we need more innovations than ever.
Summit partners have the opportunity to organize their own event as part of the summit programme on a topic of their choice and contribute to the plenary and other conference sessions.
