Innovation Festival is an INNO Action under the PRO INNO Europe Initiative® aimed at
celebrating innovation across six European cities: Barcelona, Milan, Kortrijk,
Lisbon, Vilnius and Tallinn.
The project focuses on the societal aspects of Innovation and how they are
experienced in the different partnering regions: how does innovation help
regions’ economic performance? How does it help solve challenges such as
climate change, energy and scarcity of natural resources? What role can innovation
play in making regions better equipped to deal with issues like ageing
populations and emigration?
The Innovation Festival project makes regional innovation efforts visible and
allows citizens to become actively involved in the innovation efforts. The
festivals combine general and specialized events aimed at different audiences
and bring fun, engaging and educational activities to the local crowds in
cities and regions across Europe.
The Innovation Festival project demonstrated the innovation and creativity must be
experienced and celebrated to better be understood and appreciated.
At a two-day Finale event, Innovation Festival will present its achievements and
results and look to the future, notably by marking the launch of the European
Creative Industries Alliance. The Finale will also include presentations of
other EU initiatives in support of creative industries as well as exhibitions,
music and fashion intermezzos of an innovative character.
