Representation of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia to the EU
The BILAT-USA 2.0 project is pleased to invite you to the event “Towards enhanced EU-U.S. innovation collaboration through policy measures - Pre-conference policy workshop”, held on 14 January 2015 morning in Brussels.
This event is especially intended to policy-makers and cooperation facilitators interested in discussing the latest development of the EU-U.S. cooperation in the fields of Research Technology Development and Innovation (RTDI).
The policy workshop agenda is available here.
The goal of the policy workshop will be:
- to provide feedback from businesses and business support structures to policy makers and notably to highlight barriers, challenges and good practices experienced by businesses involved in transatlantic collaboration,
- to exchange on recommendations on policy measures in order to overcome barriers and enhance EU-U.S. RTDI business collaboration.
Feedback from businesses and business support structures to policy-makers gathered at a previous workshop on “Accelerating EU-U.S. business collaboration in health/e-health Research & Innovation: Opportunities, Barriers and Best Practices” held on 20 June 2014 in Boston, USA, have been summarized in a policy brief that will be discussed during the workshop.
Please find the policy brief for download here.
This workshop is organized prior to the EU-U.S. Innovation Conference “How to integrate the innovation dimension in the EU-U.S. S&T Agreement” taking place on 14 January (afternoon) and 15 January 2015 at the same venue.
