Description

The European Innovation Council (EIC) is Europe’s most ambitious initiative to support and scale up breakthrough and disruptive innovation with transformative potential at global scale. Agility is a key feature of the EIC, which responded fast to the COVID crises: 36 innovative solutions were supported within 3 months of the outbreak, both to fight the disease and to mitigate its economic and social consequences. The EIC also awards prizes with global impact, such as the 2020 EIC Horizon prize on affordable high-tech for humanitarian aid. Looking forward, this session aims to discuss the potential of breakthrough innovation to help overcome the current crisis in its different dimensions both for Europe and globally.
