After the successful event organised in Valencia in 2006, the city of Lyon in France will be hosting the 2nd Europe INNOVA Conference from 22 to 24 October 2008, which is organised in collaboration with the French Presidency of the European Union.
The Europe INNOVA Conference 2008 will focus on accelerating innovation in Europe and how to optimise knowledge transfer, strengthening industry’s innovation capacity through strategic partnerships and supporting innovative entrepreneurs.
The conference will bring together the Europe INNOVA Community with key innovation stakeholders from the worlds of politics, academia and business, notably innovation agencies, universities and research institutions, technology transfer offices, business incubation and support services, financing intermediaries and cluster organisations, to explore the most effective ways of accelerating and supporting innovation and to debate innovation policy priorities for Europe.
The conference will analyse and discuss policy instruments and current practices for transforming knowledge creation into successful businesses across a variety of sectors such as knowledge intensive services, eco-innovation, life sciences and creative industries. It will also explore the most efficient ways of tackling access to finance and IPR issues and supporting fast growing companies and cluster collaboration.
Europe INNOVA projects will showcase the models and tools they have developed to accelerate the commercialisation of new ideas and support innovative companies.
