European innovation ecosystems (EIE)

This is new compared to the previous R&I framework programmes of the EU. The general objective is to support innovation all across Europe, and in all dimensions and forms, including through complementary EU and national and regional policies (via effective synergies with ERDF and smart specialisation strategies) and resources, whenever possible.

About this programme

The starting point of this initiative is to reduce the current fragmentation of innovation ecosystems all over Europe. Consequently this initiative provides for renewed and reinforced coordination and cooperation mechanisms with Member states and associated countries but private initiatives can also be included.

With an ecosystem they are looking at the broader sense of the word so it not just about innovative people but also about infrastructure and processes. The end goal is to create a flow of information, resources, knowledge and talent within the ecosystem which should lead to sustained co-creation and breakthrough innovations in the longer run.

A total budget of 500 million EUR is foreseen for this part of the third pillar.

PBNv2 - a MSCA ITN in the field of automotive R&D

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action (MSCA) European Innovative Training Network “PBNv2 - Next generation Pass-By Noise approaches for new powertrain vehicles” started in May 2017. Their research has the shared objective of investigating the possibilities to decrease pass-by noise of vehicles.

The project is a collaboration between 17 research institutions and companies in the European automotive R&D and provides a learning environment for 14 PhD fellows. The Belgian partner is the Noise and Vibration Research Group of KU Leuven, and this project is one of the many Horizon 2020 MSCA Innovative Training Networks that the KU Leuven research group participates in.
