The group of ten European RTOs organising The RTO Innovation Summit

Presented by Ten leading European Research and Technology Organisations (RTOs) 


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 RTOs in discussing how to solve the greatest challenges of our time.

Through parallel 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 two-day exhibition, you will have the opportunity to see and experience the outcome of applied research and innovation through interactive demonstrations and industrial prototypes. The long-standing, close relationship between RTOs and industry ensures the value, feasibility and economic viability of our solutions operating under real-life conditions.
