“the Pact takes on board the need to work at EU and national but also at regional and local level in order to achieve growth and jobs. For this to happen we need to effectively orchestrate innovation ecosystems at all levels. We need to move from strategies and planning into concrete action to boost innovation policies on the ground.”

The Chair of the K4i Forum Governing Board Lambert van Nistelrooij (MEP)

“The Pact for Innovation embodies the concept for a bottom-up
spirit leading to a targeted revision on the EU 2020 strategy in 2016, together with strong performance based programmes for innovation in the years to come.”

The European Federation of Nursing Associations (EFN) welcomes the Pact as
frontline evidence can be scaled-up,leading to innovation, there where people work and live. Innovation does not take place in an ivory tower, instead, frontline drives innovation. Today’s session on nursing and social care eHealth services is a good example of innovation, in health and social care, particularly in prevention,in clinical practice, in governance and management of the health and social care system.
