During the 12th European Innovation Summit, the European Young Chemists’ Network (EYCN) of the European Chemical Society (EuChemS) co-organised the session ‘The Role of Early-Career Professionals in Driving Sustainable Innovation’. The session was hosted by MEP Victor Negrescu. This interactive session brought together speakers from various sectors, such as IUPAC, the European Commission, University, and Industry. Speakers provided their inputs as early-career professionals on innovative technologies relevant to the European Green Deal and global long-term sustainability. They also discussed the involvement of early researchers in this process. This webinar ended with a Q&A session during which the speakers actively engaged with the participants.
The 12th European Innovation Summit was organised by Knowledge4Innovation and held online from 7 to 11 December 2020. Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, launched the event during the Opening Ceremony on 7 December. During this online event, she presented her ideas for the creation of a European single market for Innovation: a European Innovation Area (EIA).
‘We have a single European single space for researchers. And one for education. But we need to create one for innovators and entrepreneurs.’
