RICH Symposium "Fostering the Innovation Potential of RIs"

RICH, the network of National Contact Points for H2020-Research Infrastructures programme, organizes the symposium “Fostering the Innovation Potential of Research Infrastructures", on 8 May 2017, in Lisbon (Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian , FCG).

The Symposium, organized in collaboration with the European Commission (DG RTD), aims to provide a platform for effective, high-level interaction between both Research infrastructures projects and/or national RIs and industry. Even though the potential of RIs to foster innovation is clearly recognized – with industry as supplier or as user of the different RIs – it is still underexplored.

The event will cover issues related to:

- Innovation at the RI level and project level;

- Policy tools and instruments;

- Innovation in Action & Clusters and spin-offs;

- Fostering the Innovation Potential of RIs, all related to Research Infrastructures' landscape.
