Brussels, 08 Sep 2005
The European Innovation Workshop will be held in Edinburgh, UK, from 5 to 7 October.
The event, organised by the European innovation initiative PAXIS and supported by the European Commission's DG Enterprise and Industry, will welcome European innovation practitioners from the 22 PAXIS regions of excellence and projects, the partners of the Europe-Innova project on clusters development and sectoral innovation financing and the IRE network.
The workshop will provide a unique opportunity to learn from PAXIS innovation practice, discuss gateways and obstacles to the transfer of innovation concepts across Europe, as well as to meet clusters specialists and hear about transnational cluster approaches. Participants will obtain the latest information about European innovation policy and projects, learn how to explore collaboration opportunities within the new Europe-Innova initiative and understand the obstacles of innovation financing in sectors and regions. The workshop will also be a meeting place to find partners for European innovation projects.
