Brussels, 15 December 2015 – EBN participated last week in the 7th European Innovation Summit, that took place in Brussels from 7th to 10th December. David Tee, Head of Membership at EBN, moderated a panel on the subject of “Innovation ecosystems: Startups, Incubators and Venture Capital in Europe” in a session hosted by MEP Cora Van Nieuwenhuizen, with expert contributions from the European Commission, ESA, the European Institute of Technology and more. Several other EBN Members took part in the Summit.
Following the panel, David Tee stated: “It is clear from the broad agreement in the panel that European innovation ecosystems must work more closely together in order to compete as a large single player. London, Paris, Berlin and Amsterdam have clear individual strengths, but together they provide a world-beating environment for startups. Encouraging pan-European actions will increase the likelihood of successful, high-growth, high-employment businesses.”
