IES' Researcher Tomas Wyns speaks at European Business Summit 2017 in Brussels

Tomas Wyns presented views on developing a industrial strategy for Europe at the year's European Business Summit in Brussels. Such industrial strategy will have to be mission oriented and therefore seek to address major societal challenges. Innovation will have to be at the core of such strategy and therefore further the intent and size of Horizon 2020 into the next EU multi-annual financial framework (MFF). The presentation at the business summit was part of a project under which the IES is assisting i24C. i24c, the Industrial Innovation for Competitiveness initiative, is a platform dedicated to developing and promoting an industrial strategy that secures European industry’s competitive advantage through innovation.
