The WIRE is an annual platform for policy makers, national and regional authorities, institutions and enterprises from all over Europe to have an in-depth discussion on research and innovation practices and challenges throughout the European regions, including possibilities in the current EU funding programmes and those beyond 2020. WIRE locations should make a difference in the EU innovation policy discourse. Innsbruck 2018 was the first WIRE in the Alpine macro-region.
Innsbruck in Tyrol will host the 9th edition of Week of Innovative Regions in Europe (WIRE) from March 30 to April 3th 2020. The conference will be organised during the first week of the Austrian EU Council Presidency.
