Open EUREKA Innovation Week is a major event organized by EUREKA that serves as a meeting point to share and discuss ideas, with around 1,000 attendees from the European industry, including SMEs, academics, politicians, financial institution representatives and public authorities, among others. It is considered an open forum, and is free-of-charge for all those interested in R&D&I. Its 2017 edition will be focused on further activating the principle of openness.
The OEIW helps to create bonds between companies from different countries to innovate and internationalize their activities. In addition, it is an instance in which companies can learn about EUREKA financing opportunities, and facilitates the exchange of knowledge and best practices.
