The International Network of Innovation Ecosystems

Considering the current health crisis and the recent developments on travel restrictions across Europe and the World, the Grenoble Senior Level Group of the HLF has decided to postpone the 2020 summit until autumn 2021.

This decision has been taken as an opportunity to create a differentiated digital event with innovative and valuable content to encourage more global participation within the HLF network. Therefore, the postponed summit will be replaced by the first HLF Connect briefing hosted online from Grenoble on Dec 1st, during which Innovation Ecosystems of the HLF will discuss three critical issues of our time :

Innovation ecosystem resilience: Impacts in the short to long term
New collaborations and alliances; strategies for inclusive innovation
Win Tech : winning technologies in the time of Covid
