Event, HUB event, 2022

22nd June

This High-Level Conference will be dedicated to the role of science-based innovation in the promotion of the digital and green agendas, taking place on the 22nd of June. In order to do so, we will address the key issues and elements in the European, national and regional research, and innovation ecosystems, all needed to ensure an alignment between EU funding goals and R&I institutions, regions and national governments.

In particular we will address:

1) The key role of the wide diversity of research and technology infrastructures in supporting fully functional, competitive, state-of-the-art and disruptive R&I ecosystems, drawing on the experience of a set of ESFRI RIs and TIs across Europe and contributing for the discussion to continue seamlessly in the Czech Presidency of the EU;

2) The funding of the full R&I cycle and its impact on cohesion and competitiveness: it is well known by now that an ecosystem, at any level (supra or sub-national) needs a complete set of entities developing fundamental research, supporting the transition between this research and the market and those who actually uptake the knowledge from lower TRLs and transform it into marketable solutions. This, in turn, requires a fully complementary set of funding instruments that support both basic, intermediate and pre-market research and innovation.

This event will be a hybrid event taking place via Zoom and at Sala Damião de Góis, Portuguese Permanent Representation to the European Union, Avenue de Cortenbergh 12, 1040 Bruxelles
