The annual FFG FORUM with its motto “Best of Austria meets Europe” gave representatives from research, industry, administration and politics the opportunity to discuss future-oriented topics of high relevance for both the national and the European level. Minister Heinz Faßmann emphasised that Austria has already raised more than one billion euro from the EU-Framework Programme "Horizon 2020” while EU Commissioner Carlos Moedas addressed the ongoing "Horizon Europe" negotiations during the Austrian EU Council Presidency in his keynote speech: “The next few months will define the next few years.” After the award ceremony of the “Nurturing Talents Prize”, significance and impact of innovation were discussed in thematic panels. The evening event with the Ministers Margarete Schramböck and Norbert Hofer offered a mix of information, entertainment and networking.
