The European Commission has launched an online stakeholders survey on strengthening the European innovation ecosystem and increasing innovation cohesion.

The aim is to gather views from a wide range of stakeholders, including ministries, regional and local authorities, venture capital companies and business angels, universities and research organisations, science and technology parks, incubators and accelerators, funding agencies, businesses, SMEs, and start-ups, business support organisations including cluster organisations, NGOs, civil society organisations and citizens.

‘Input will feed into ongoing analysis and reflections on the evolution of the European innovation ecosystem, also in view of future programming for Horizon Europe (e.g. European Innovation Ecosystems, European Innovation Council), and Cohesion Policy programmes and the role of smart specialisation approaches. … European Commission services in charge of Research and Innovation and of Cohesion policy will analyse the contributions received and will post on their webpages the outcome of this survey, including a summary report highlighting the key insights gained.’

It takes approximately 20 minutes to complete the survey. The deadline to submit contributions is 15 September 17:00 CET. You can partake in the survey through this link Stakeholders’ survey on Europe’s innovation ecosystem
