E&Y’s European Government & Innovation Summit
The 2012 Ernst & Young event on Government & Innovation in the European Union is fast approaching. This European conference is an excellent opportunity to connect with the EU and the business community around innovation and to stimulate an ongoing dialogue between both communities.
Ernst & Young’s Growing Beyond Summit explores opportunities across expanding into new markets, finding new ways to innovate and implementing new approaches to talent. We cordially invite you to join Ernst & Young and a select group of senior executives and policy-makers from across Europe at our latest Growing Beyond Summit, where we will discuss how to create a smarter and simpler innovation policy in the European Union — the theme of the day is Government & Innovation.
The results of Ernst & Young’s second annual report on Government & Innovation confirm that the combined strength of EU governments and institutions, when effectively partnered with the business community, can stimulate and foster innovation and entrepreneurship. We will examine what needs to be done to enable the public and private sectors to pioneer breakthrough innovations that will drive much-needed economic growth.
