Investing in Europe's Future: Innovation, R&D and Talents

November 12, 2020

As Europe strives to boost its global competitiveness and fight the economic impacts of the Covid-19 crisis, innovation will be key. This edition of the Tech Policy Talks series, a cooperation between Forum Europe and Qualcomm, will analyse the innovation policy challenges and opportunities: How can the EU and member states develop a more coherent approach to innovation, and how can we foster strong public-private partnerships? Will the development of a European Innovation Area create a more distinct European approach to innovation? What are the main tools available to tackle regional innovation disparities, whether because of human or economic capital flows? How can infrastructure improvements, such as wireless connectivity and 5G networks, ensure a true European Innovation Area that serves the startups and innovators, and the attractiveness of Europe as an innovation destination?
