The annual European Innovation Summit in Brussels gets underway at the end of November.
This year's event is set to be bigger and better than ever, with a range of new platforms added to the programme - including the EU50 Millenial Startup Competition.
Organisers' Knowledge4Innovation (K4I) are passionate about supporting the next generation of innovators + Innovators Magazine is on the same page - see, there's our co-founder, Susan Robertson, enjoying a K4I breakfast discussion on the issue.
The top 50 startups selected to take part in the Summit's new EU50 initiative will join a special convention in the European Parliament on 28 November - where they will pitch their game-changing ideas. They will also hear from pioneer and 'serial-explorer', Bertrand Piccard, the keynote speaker and a strong advocate for all things innovation.
Innovators Magazine is producing a Summit edition featuring the EU50 and an exclusive interview with Bertrand Piccard. We're also holding a reception as part of the official programme, on 30 November - we hope you can join us.
And you can watch the 50 startups live from the European Parliament on 28 November.
And read about them here.
And some wonderful Arran Whisky made the closing ceremony of the European Innovation Summit a happy place to be.
