The Network Session: “ETPs — EECA countries Communities networking” 

European Technology Platforms (ETPs) are industry-led stakeholders recognized by the European Commission as key actors in driving innovation, knowledge transfer and European competitiveness. They develop research and innovation agendas and roadmaps for action on the EU and national level and mobilize stakeholders. 

During the last few years, the European Commission has undertaken a particular effort to strengthen strategic partnerships in the field of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) R&I activities and to encourage the International Cooperation in the ICT Research domain between European Union and Eastern European and Central Asia (EECA) countries.

By enlarging ETP communities with the active involvement of the EECA experts, the European Technology Platforms are able to broaden their field of work and collaboration, and the EECA specialists have the opportunity to exchange ideas, put forward issues, offer input on regional trends, and discuss cooperation. 

Hosting a relevant networking event within the framework of the largest ICT event gives the opportunity to involve more players from both sides into the community and thus enhance the communities work with more views, ideas and hence collaboration opportunities and synergies.

Description of the format:

The event will include three sub-sessions, each dedicated to a specific ETP, namely NEM, NESSI and Photonics21. All participants of the session will have the opportunity to present themselves, express their views on the discussed subjects and provide information on what they wish to gain from their participation in the communities.
