Meeting today's societal challenges makes it more necessary than ever to valorise the excellent scientific knowledge and research results that we produce in Europe. A broad mobilisation of all actors is necessary to make rapid progress in enhancing the societal and economic uptake of research-based solutions across the Union. We need to work together at all levels. We need to define strategies, create tools and networks, engage in exchanges between researchers, industry, civil society and policy makers - in our regions, countries and across borders.
The EU Knowledge Valorisation Week will bring together experts and actors of knowledge valorisation in Europe. It will enable the sharing of experiences and expertise, peer learning and discussion on current issues, thereby promoting reform and nourishing a culture of knowledge valorisation, innovation and entrepreneurship.
Stakeholders have helped shape the programme. With the presentation of best practices proposed by them and the ‘Valorisation Cafés’ for debate amongst participants, the 2022 edition is more than ever a place of exchange and collaboration.
The EU Knowledge Valorisation Week contributes to the new European Research Area (ERA) that calls for better translating R&I results into the economy and society. It will support the current work on ‘upgrading EU guidance for a better knowledge valorisation’ and allow exploring interest and possibilities of future joint EU action based on existing best practices.
The EU Knowledge Valorisation Week is organised by the European Commission, Directorate-General Research and Innovation, EU Member States and EEA countries.
