Enhance Regional Innovation and Growth: possibilities for integrated funding through regional cooperation with Joint Undertakings (JUs)

11 October 2016 to 12 October 2016
Committee of the Regions, Van Maerlant, Room 1

To boost innovation and growth in the regions, synergies between different funding mechanisms such as the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) and the Horizon 2020 programme are crucial.

Five public-private partnerships (BBI, Clean Sky, ECSEL, FCH, IMI) and their regional and industrial partners (Andalucia, Carinthia, Clariant GmbH, Noord-Brabant, Scotland, Valcea) come together to exchange best practices on enhancing regional innovation by combining public and private funding and explore new forms of cooperation. Speakers represent regions, JUs, industry and research project partners in the field of electronic components and systems, health, fuel cells and hydrogen, aeronautics and bio-based industries.

This conference is part of the the European Week of Regions and Cities (EWRC) and will be held in the Committee of the Regions, Van Maerlant, Room 1, on 11 October 2016, from 14.30 to 17.00. A networking session is set to immediately follow the panel discussion.
