Europe INNOVA aims to be a “laboratory for the development, testing and promotion of new tools and instruments in suppport of innovation” – for new knowledge on cluster collaboration, for SME innovation support and for the wider roll-out and take-up innovations.

The Europe INNOVA 2012 Conference is thus a bold attempt to change our mindsets. By stress testing our existing innovation systems and constructively criticising current policy making in Europe, the ambition is to create a basis for thinking and acting differently when it comes to putting innovation policy into practice.

Mr. Enric Pedros representing the Catalan Cluster of Agricultural Machinery, and Mr. Jordi Sola, as the manager of  one of the companies actively involved in the cluster initiatives, took part in the “court” of “Networks and Cluster Policy – And why Excellence Matters” where the growth and the employment were discussed.
