The European Commission DG Research and Innovation organised the "Industry, partnerships – a new impetus" Conference in Brussels on 26 June 2018. The Conference was opened by Jean-Eric Paquet, Director General of DG Research and Innovation.
The aim was to:
• Discuss the role of contractual partnerships with industry in the future,
• Develop a clear concept for these European partnerships under the Horizon Europe Framework Programme, and
• Focus on European industry-driven priorities in manufacturing, processing, ICT and automotive.
High-level speakers from industry, the European institutions and Member States discussed their expectations for these partnerships, as well as the impact of the digital, low carbon and circular economy on manufacturing and processing.
