Industrial Innovation Info Days, 3-4 October 2017

< Back

The European Commission is organising the industrial innovation information days 2017, with the support of the cPPPs and external stakeholders.

The purpose of this major event, which will gather more than 1000 participants, is to inform stakeholders about activities in the “Key Enabling Technologies” part of Horizon 2020.

 The aim is to:

  • build the basis for the future of industrial research in Europe
  • inform relevant industrial technologies providers and users about EU activities in the field
  • enhance cooperation among industrial stakeholders

The programme will include keynote addresses on current and future investments in EU research & innovation, as well as presentations on upcoming challenges in the area of Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Advanced Manufacturing and Processing, and Biotechnology.

The Info Days will also involve significant networking activities. During brokerage and matchmaking sessions, participants will have the opportunity to present their project ideas and meet potential partners from similar fields with a view to developing future project proposals.

Stakeholder Member States are involved in the organisation of the event and will be present to give concrete advice to potential Horizon 2020 applicants.



A specific session dedicated to the SPIRE PPP will take place in the afternoons of 3 and 4 October. The first afternoon will be followed by a brokerage and networking event, supported by the SPIRE Association, during which interested stakeholders will have the opportunity to present their initial project ideas for the 2018-19 SPIRE and SPIRE-related calls and meet potential partners.

Should you be interested in presenting a project idea, please send an email to by September 27, indicating your name, the name of your company, the title of your project and the reference of the call topic addressed. We strongly recommend to use this template to prepare your presentation.
