FOCUS GROUP TRAINING ON EUROPEAN INNOVATION ECOSYSTEMS
The event focused on the relevant calls of the Work Programme 2021-2022 for European Innovation Ecosystems aiming to:
- build interconnected, inclusive innovation ecosystems across Europe by drawing on the existing strengths of national, regional and local ecosystems
- reinforce network connectivity within and between innovation ecosystems to accelerate sustainable business growth with high societal value
- supports the European Partnership for Innovative SMEs (Eurostars 3)
In the event we presented the ‘big picture’ of the calls, providing insight into the context, vision, objectives, and expected impacts for the EIE programme. We offered a closer look at the implementation aspects and elaborate on all EIE Calls for 2021 and 2022. We also offered the opportunity for sharing first-hand experiences from the participation of a Turkish institution as Coordinator in H2020 INNOSUP calls. The event concluded with a round table discussion amongst the panellists offering the opportunity of an interactive session with questions received from the participants.
The sessions were structured in such a way to help participants grasp the fundamental concepts and offered an enhanced opportunity to shed light on practical aspects, helping them winning from the experience and extensive know-how of the experts. The content was enriched with presentations, training notes, curated literature from the EU, and useful templates.
