INNOVATIVE ENTERPRISE WEEK BUCHAREST 2019

Project description

European conference to empower innovators

High-level representatives and national and regional decision-makers, companies, research, academia and civil society were called to discuss the next EU Research and Innovation Programme (2021-2027). This was the aim of the EU-funded IEW Bucharest 2019 project, which organised a three-day international conference titled “Innovative Enterprise Week Bucharest 2019”. The event was co-organised by the European Commission, through DG CONNECT and DG RTD, together with the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union. It organised stage debates on how to bridge the gap from idea to investable project, how to support breakthrough innovations and the scale up potential with high risk for private investors. The aim was to raise the political profile of the new European Innovation Council.

Objective

The objective of the project is to organise a three full day international conference titled “Innovative Enterprise Week Bucharest 2019” (IEW Bucharest 2019) .

The conference will bring on the stage debates about how to bridge the gap from idea to investable project, how to support breakthrough innovations and the scale up potential with high risk for private investors.

Over the course of the three days, the conference will focus on three overarching topics for the next EU Research and Innovation Programme (2021-2027) – Horizon Europe: Pathfinder, Accelerator and Financial Instruments.

The project will work intensively to engage quadruple helix actors – high level representatives and national and regional decision makers, companies, research and academia and civil society – in an active dialogue on how to enable breakthrough innovation through the new European Innovation Council.

The legacy of IEW Bucharest 2019 is two-folded: along with the increased levels of awareness and understanding of the Horizon Europe programme, with particular focus on the European Innovation Council, a framework for new international collaborations for innovative projects will be arranged.
