The Commission launched a call for expression of interest for Regional Innovation Valleys (RIVs) which will remain open until 18 September 2023 and aims at identifying local challenges and needs in various innovation domains.
The main goal of RIVs, a flagship initiative of the New European Innovation Agenda, is to identify up to 100 regions committed to enhancing the coordination and direction of their research and innovation projects through understanding the local challenges and needs.
This call for expression of interest will enable regions to express their interest to become regional innovation valleys and identify specific local challenges and needs. Regions are also invited to indicate in which innovation domain (including healthcare system, food security, renewable energy, circular economy, etc) they would like to strengthen their R&I investments.
Express your interest to become a Regional Innovation Valley!
