Interregional Innovation Investments: towards EU economic recovery

As the COVID-19 crisis reaches new levels, the European Union is preparing to address an unprecedented post-Corona reality with the development of an EU economic recovery policy and a realigned Multi-Annual Financial Framework (MFF). EuroTech, together with European regions and innovation stakeholders calls on the European institutions to use the EU Interregional Innovation Investment instrument to unleash the innovation potential available in Europe’s regions for Europe’s recovery.

This new instrument, proposed by the European Commission in the 2018 MFF proposal and supported by the European Parliament and Council, entails a coordinated approach for innovation related investments in the development of interregional value chains across the EU. It supports the creation of interregional public-private innovation partnerships that can strengthen our European industrial ecosystems and their key value chains, paving the way for follow up financing by private investors.
