Commission conducts survey on Innovation Ecosystems in Europe
The European Commission has published a consultation for invited stakeholders on the Innovation Ecosystems in Europe. The survey is part of a broad consultation carried out by the Innovation Ecosystems Task Force of the European Commission’s Directorate General for Research and Innovation.
In its proposal for the next research and innovation framework programme Horizon Europe, setting out the EU’s priorities and funding for R&I from 2021 to 2027, the European Commission has included – for the first time – a section on European innovation ecosystems, under Pillar III of Horizon Europe, with a proposed budget of €500 million. The objective of the questionnaire is to understand the challenges, needs and priorities of the innovation actors in Europe, with a view to gathering input as to how the European Innovation Ecosystems component of Horizon Europe can best support them, within the mandate set out in the Commission’s proposal.
