StartUp Europe welcomed Máire Geoghegan-Quinn, European commissioner for research, innovation and science; and Vince Cable, UK secretary of state for business, innovation and skills, for a discussion on Innovation Union: Driving Europe’s Competitiveness Agenda. An eclectic and dedicated group of business leaders, successful web entrepreneurs, top academics, and senior experts from the European institutions joined the interactive debate on how to broaden Europe’s research and innovation agenda and align it better with the wider competitiveness and digital economy roadmap.

The policy forum convened in the margins of Campus Party, the world’s largest technology festival, hosted by Telefónica and held at the O2 Arena in London.
