High-level conference on R&I foundations and other venture philanthropists


This two-day conference explore and develop ideas for innovative forms of finance in order to 'bring science into finance and finance into science' and serve as a living lab to create new partnerships to reinforce collaboration between R&I foundations, the public sector and business in order to further stimulate R&I in Europe. The event will bring together R&I foundations and other venture philanthropists, policy-makers, and representatives of the research, innovation and business communities. The conclusions of the conference are expected to feed the European Commission's continued reflection on how to address societal challenges.
