Conference "Enhancing innovation and the delivery of research in EU agriculture" (Brussels, 07/03/2012) - Agriculture and rural development. Fostering research, knowledge transfer and innovation in the agricultural sector is vital for improving productivity, sustainability and competitiveness. This conference marked an important step in the discussions on the ways to enhance innovation and the translation of research results in the farming sector, as outlined in the CAP reform legislative proposals adopted by the Commission on 12 October 2011.

The objective of the conference was to discuss the main building blocks of EU support to research and innovation for the agricultural sector after 2013. After setting the stage of agricultural research and learning from recent experiences, the conference strived to highlight the critical aspects necessary for research to impact the agricultural sector. In particular, the role played by networks, advisory services, education and other actors in the translation of research results and in fostering innovative approaches were investigated.

Europe 2020 – Europe's growth strategy

In a changing world, we want the EU to become a smart, sustainable and inclusive economy. These three mutually reinforcing priorities should help the EU and the Member States deliver high levels of employment, productivity and social cohesion. Concretely, the Union has set five ambitious objectives - on employment, innovation, education, social inclusion and climate/energy - to be reached by 2020. Each Member State has adopted its own national targets in each of these areas. Concrete actions at EU and national levels underpin the strategy. Full text of the Strategy.

Member States and regions must lose no time in preparing the next generation of EU programmes for growth, says Commissioner Hahn after MEPs' vote on radical reform of EU Regional Policy in July 2013. The new programming period brings new investment budgets for Member States, seeking synergies between Regional Policy and Horizon 2020 in order to maximise the innovation opportunities. The data-driven economy can provide Europe with a chance to emerge from the multifaceted crisis with new capabilities.

El Instituto de Prospectiva Tecnológica (IPTS) es uno de los siete institutos de investigación del Centro Común de Investigación de la Comisión Europea.

The Institute for Prospective Technological Studies

El IPTS tiene su sede en Sevilla, España. Desde el año 1994 el IPTS promueve una mejor comprensión de la relación entre tecnología, economía y sociedad. La misión del IPTS consiste en proporcionar apoyo científico y técnico para la formulación de políticas comunitarias que entrañen una dimensión tanto socioeconómica como científico-tecnológica. Los estudios llevados al cabo por el IPTS son solicitados principalmente por otras Direcciones Generales de la Comision Europea. En los últimos años se han desarrollado también diversos trabajos para el Parlamento Europeo. El IPTS colabora con otros institutos del Centro Común de Investigación y diferentes organismos europeos. El trabajo científico se estructura en cuatro grandes áreas:
