The first European Innovation Convention will take place on December 5-6, 2011 in Brussels.

This conference will bring together world leading experts in research and innovation to share their views on building a global innovation economy.

This first edition of the Innovation Convention will be opened by President Barroso one year after the adoption of the Innovation Union flagship initiative, the EU’s roadmap to turn Europe into a more innovation-friendly and competitive continent.

For anyone involved in the innovation cycle (from research, business, or financing innovation to policy-making), the Innovation Convention will be an opportunity to:

  • engage in and contribute to the innovation debate with high-level policy-makers, top researchers and business leaders
  • gain inspiration from world-renowned speakers
  • network and exchange experiences with your peers – at least 1200 participants are expected
  • discover exciting results of research and innovation in the exhibition of projects funded by the EU

The event is free, but places are limited so you need to register for the event.
