The 9th European Innovation Summit will take place during the week 27.11 - 1.12 2017 in and around the European Parliament in Brussels in the context of the first ever European Innovation Week.

2017 is an important year for the future of innovation in Europe as preparations for the next Multiannual Financial Framework start and attention focuses on the next Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. At the same time, it is an opportunity to reflect on how we can innovate more intelligently by making better use of available knowledge and resources. Each day offers a varied programme of debates and presentations on a diverse range of topical themes, such as Regenerative Medicines and the Future of the Cohesion Fund,  each session being hosted by an MEP.

The EU Top 50 Millennial Start-up Competition is at the centre of the European Innovation Week programme. Over a three month period from August to October 2017 the next generation researchers, innovators and entrepreneurs were invited to submit their ideas and inventions in areas such as health & life science, food and agriculture, bio-, nano-, neurotech, digital technologies and deep tech materials and new production technologies, as well as energy transition, environment and climate change, transport, space, security, creative sectors and education etc.

The programme of the European Innovation Week starts on 27 November with pitches by the top 50 innovators selected  as a result of the competition. Five will be selected to speak on Tuesday morning, 28 November alongside Members of the European Commission and the European Parliament, C-level corporate representatives and investors.

The summit ends on 30 November with a closing ceremony and networking reception on the occasion of St. Andrews Day.
