EU aims to position itself at the forefront of the new wave of deep tech innovation and start-ups and the creation
of regional innovation valleys (RIVs) is a one of the crucial factor to achieve this goal. Under the New Innovation
Agenda, it is foreseen to establish and network regional deep tech innovation valleys. RIVs should help to link
innovation actors across all Europe and address the existing innovation performance gap between the various
regions in the EU. Europe has set the ambitious goal to identify up to 100 regions committed to enhance
the coordination and direction of their research and innovation investment and policies, at regional level
and to collaborate on inter-regional innovation projects including in deep tech innovation, linked to the key EU

The goal of this virtual event is to provide information about the RIVs and the call for expression of interest
for RIVs and how regions can join this initiative.

The deadline for registration is Monday, 8 May 2023.
