The Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) Summit—to be held at CEA-Grenoble on February 7, 2013—aims to spur crucial programs to get Europe back to economic growth and competitiveness, and to get politicians on board. The summit is being co-sponsored by French Minister of Higher Education and Research Geneviève Fioraso and French Minister of Industrial Renewal Arnaud Montebourg, and will be attended by European Commission Vice President Antonio Tajani as well as the Ministers of Research and Industry from several European countries.
Declining competitiveness has forced EU governments to implement economic stimulus programs. The six Key Enabling Technologies identified at the Summit will lay the groundwork for the innovation that is needed to jump-start the lagging European manufacturing industry.
