EIC Pathfinder: from Breakthrough Technologies to Disruptive Innovations

June 19th 2019
Polytechnic University of Bucharest (UPB) Campus, Bucharest, Romania


How does the future of innovation look like?


This is the main question the European Innovation Council (EIC) and its Pathfinder activities, the successors of FET Open and FET Proactive, will answer on June 19 at the “Innovative Enterprise Week Bucharest 2019”.


Scientific experts, innovators, investors and policymakers will not only discuss the latest trends and challenges related to European research but also debate on how to shape European Innovation Council (EIC) pilot‘s Pathfinder programme. The latest scheme will integrate FET-Open and FET-Proactive, and will bridge science, technology and innovation altogether in the new European research and innovation program, Horizon Europe.


FET and the European approach for deep-tech innovation


A series of talks will address the ways on how science-driven multidisciplinary research under the EIC such as Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) can be channeled into concrete innovation opportunities. One of the speakers will include FETFX project coordinator, Marta Calderaro from APRE, who will be at the “Information session on the Pilot EIC Pathfinder calls in 2019 and 2020” to be held from 16:30 to 17:30.


Exhibits will also be displayed during the event. FETFX will have a booth together with two other FET CSA projects, PREFET and FET Briefing where participants can access information related to FET projects and their innovative breakthrough results.


The event is co-organised by the European Commission and the Romanian Presidency as part of the Innovative Enterprise Week series of events. On the Romanian Presidency dedicated website you’ll find practical information on the venue, travel kit, and other useful links.
