European Commission Launches New Innovation Initiatives, Advancing the New European Innovation Agenda
One year after the adoption of the New European Innovation Agenda, the European Commission is making significant progress in positioning Europe as a leader in deep tech innovation and start-ups. At a conference on deep tech entrepreneurship in Stockholm, Sweden, Executive Vice-President Margrethe Vestager highlighted the achievements and future plans outlined in the Agenda. The delivery of 25 actions is well underway, with nine already implemented and 16 ongoing, including initiatives such as the Regional Innovation Valleys and the EIC Scale Up 100 program. The collective effort of Member States and countries associated with Horizon Europe is driving this innovation agenda, with a strong focus on funding for deep tech scale-ups and talent development.
