The European Documentation Centre organizes the Seminar “The future is already present: research and innovation in the EU”
Investing in research and innovation is investing in the future of Europe. It helps us compete globally while preserving our unique social model and improves the day-to-day lives of millions of people in Europe and around the world, by helping to solve some of our main social challenges.
EU support for research and innovation creates added value by stimulating cooperation between research teams from different countries and disciplines, something that is vital for obtaining revolutionary discoveries.
Through its multiannual research and innovation framework programs, the EU offers funding for:
- strengthen the EU position in science
- consolidate industrial innovation, including investment in fundamental technologies, greater facilities to access capital and support small businesses
- address major social problems, such as climate change, sustainable transport and renewable energy
- ensure that technological advances translate into viable products with genuine commercial potential by associating the public and private sectors
- intensify international cooperation in research and innovation
These seminar, through their conferences, are an opportunity to learn first-hand the experiences of specialists in the field, as well as local companies that have participated in European financing projects.
The seminar is free assistance and therefore will be open to anyone interested.
