Please join us for an event about raising the innovation potential.

There’s great potential to raise productivity and economic dynamism in Europe through innovation. While there are fascinating new technological breakthroughs in many areas – big data, artificial intelligence, materials, nanotechnology, biomedicine, and more – the pace of innovation and change in the real economy is often slow and technological change doesn’t give the desired contribution to our economic performance. What’s holding back innovation – and what can be done to accelerate innovative change?
