On 22 and 23 February, the European Commission (EC) hosted the second edition of the EU Industry Day forum. EC Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, Carlos Moedas, delivered a speech in which he described the innovative changes in industry and society as resembling the propeller of a plane ‘’with three strong blades: the first is Science; the second is Start-Ups; and the third is Industry’’.
He also announced the launch of the EIC Horizon Prize on Innovative Batteries for e-Vehicles, with an award of €10 million for whoever manages to crack the challenge of developing a safe and sustainable battery for electric vehicles. Up to the task? Click here for more information.
