18 – 20 May 2021 - Meet like-minded people, meet people you want to learn from!

During the Austrian Eureka Chairmanship 2020-2021, the Styrian Business Promotion Agency (SFG) and the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) are joining forces to organise the "Global Innovation Summit 2021". B2B meetings are brought to you by Enterprise Europe Network. Many national and international organisations, companies and clusters are supporting the themes of the conference and organising engaging sessions on both 18 and 19 May.
The Global Innovation Summit is an international meeting place for businesses and innovators to share and exchange knowledge, to network, to collaborate and secure future business growth opportunities. Businesses from across the globe will come together and share their distinctive insights and collaborative solutions. International speakers will tell their exciting stories, share the growth and journey of their ideas and innovations. You will be networking in your own field of interest and expertise. Participation is free of charge.

Main Topics

Green Transition

The Green Deal as an economic, ecological and social transformation process is one of the centre pieces of political discourse at both international and national levels. One objective of the summit is to support the innovative developments towards green transition and the associated importance of the role of research and innovation programmes.


The reconstruction of the economy and international cooperation after the Corona crisis will play an important role in 2021. The summit’s goal is to take stock of the situation one year after the outbreak of the Corona crisis and to reflect on the resulting consequences for the European and international economic and RTI system.

Digital Transformation

Digital Transition and its impact is another priority of this year’s summit. Here we seek to promote networking among innovative international SMEs and global companies from the Eureka network during a structured exchange of innovative ideas with regard to digital and sustainable development goals.

Participation is free of charge

Due to the current situation we are planning a virtual event with limited on-site attendance for speakers, panelists and interview partners and organisational/technical staff only. Unfortunately we have to insist on virtual attendance for all other participants. Our approved COV-19 security concept will provide all the necessary security measures for our on-site speakers, panelists and interview partners and other people working at the event.
