Conferences on Corporate R&D and Innovation (CONCORD) Conferences on Corporate R&D and Innovation (CONCORD)

JRC's CONCORDi is the bi-annual International Conference on Corporate R&D and Innovation where world renowned academics, largest corporate investors and policy makers meet and discuss. CONCORD conferences provide a platform for discussion on how research can support evidence-based policy making in the area of private R&D and innovation investments. By bringing together in a bi-annual cycle the research community, private sector representatives and policy makers, existing knowledge on the topic is shared and discussed and new emerging issues and topics are explored in view of developing new shared research agendas.

The conferences also offer the opportunity to present to a wide audience the work and results of the Industrial Research and Innovation (IRI) scientific action.
