Innovation in Action

The five Joint Technology Initiatives – IMI, Clean Sky, Eniac, FCH, and ARTEMIS – held a week-long event, Innovation in Action, at the European Parliament.  The objective was to present their achievements to date as well as their vision on future challenges. The JTIS ran a series of joint sessions, including a debate, press breakfast and exhibition targetted at an audience that included policy makers, press, industry, academic and research organisations.  The entire event focussed on the added value of the public-private model for innovative research and the positive contributions that the JTIs make to an improved European quality of life. In light of the ongoing discussions on the Innovation Investment Package within the EU Horizon 2020 Programme, presented on 10 July 2013 by the European Commission, the event was an opportunity to raise awareness amongst key stakeholders for the ongoing need for these type of initiatives in the area of European policy on research and development.
