New Approaches for Financing Innovation

3rd "Brussels Background" Panel Discussions

Innovation is the magic word when it comes to how Europe can best survive today"s global competition. Europe"s products should not be cheaper but instead, better. But innovation is not cheap: The transition from a good idea to a marketable product or service costs money.

This event will introduce European Union projects that specialise in early-phase and innovation financing. The basic idea behind all these projects is to help regions better exploit their innovation potential by distributing the risks of innovation more evenly which improves the likelihood of attracting investors willing to get involved in the early developmental stages of young businesses.
