The inaugural European Innovation Area (EIA) Summit will take place this summer to coincide with the unveiling of the European Commission’s new plans for accelerating innovation across the continent.

The summit is expected to be the launchpad for a new and dynamic era of innovation in Europe – one dedicated to delivering the world’s first climate-neutral continent.

Organised by Knowledge4Innovation (K4I), the Summit programme will lean on the EIA manifesto and its 8 Focus Areas, which align with the Commission’s vision for transforming the continent’s innovation ecosystem.

“By taking a decentralised co-creation approach we can develop a European Innovation Area which offers equal access to funding and where startups in one country can easily bid for public contracts in another,” said European Commissioner, Mariya Gabriel. “Where startups and corporates work more closely together and where we have strong European associations bringing together all the actors of the European innovation ecosystems. I want us to achieve this and to nurture a networking culture fit for the 21st century, where all players are able to easily connect at a local and European level. And I also want to see the increased participation of women-led startups.”

Advancing these ambitions will be the priority of the first ever EIA Summit. To secure your place at the event, which will take place from 27-30 June in Brussels and online, sign the EIA Manifesto.
