EIT Conference on good practices and learning – video streams and presentations available

Mon, 07/09/2012 - 4:16am
European Institute of Innovation and Technology

It is always a pleasure to see committed and bright innovators come together under the same roof, and the EIT is proud to be the organiser of such significant meetings and interesting talks as the ones that took place last week in Copenhagen.

What has the EIT achieved to date? Most importantly, how was this achieved?

These were the key questions addressed at the EIT Conference on ‘Good Practices and Learnings’, which took place at Copenhagen Business School under the auspices of the Danish Presidency on 25 and 26 June.

Within the framework of a wider discussion on the future of innovation policies and the integration of the knowledge triangle (business, research, higher education), the EIT was able to showcase its first achievements and increase understanding on how it can help advance innovation in Europe.

You can find below the video streams and presentations from the sessions. The full conference report and film will follow shortly.
