The 2nd RTO Innovation Summit

Industrial technologies for the future


18 - 19 November 2020


Introduction to the 2nd RTO Innovation Summit


How can we foster and maintain Europe’s competitiveness, sustainability and technological leadership in the Digital Age? Which technologies will make the European Green Deal a success? We invite you to look to solutions from applied research and innovation and join ten leading European Research and Technology Organisations (RTOs) in discussing how to solve the greatest challenges of our time.

Through sessions taking place under three headlines – “The European Green Deal”, “A Europe Fit for the Digital Age” and “Industrial Competitiveness” – we will show concrete, technology-based solutions for the most pressing societal and economic challenges of the coming years. In the accompanying digital exhibition, you will have the opportunity to see and experience the outcome of applied research and innovation through interactive demonstrations. The long-standing, close relationship between RTOs and industry ensures the value, feasibility and economic viability of our solutions operating under real-life conditions.
