For 30 years, the EU’s Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) programme encouraged researchers from different disciplines to work together to convert crazy scientific ideas into proofs of concept, laying the foundations for radically new technologies. Now, the FET programme will be integrated into the new European Innovation Council and will help research to become industrial applications and systems more quickly.
Over the course of three days – 19, 20 and 21st of June 2019 – we will focus on topics and challenges for the next EU Research and Innovation Programme (2021-2027) – Horizon Europe as well as on the European Innovation Council, a very powerful instrument foreseen to strongly support European “breakthrough innovators”.
