Conference Announcement and call for papers: "Industrial innovation for Open Strategic Autonomy – Leaving no one and no place behind"
The 9th biennial European Conference on Corporate R&D and Innovation (CONCORDi 2023), an hybrid event, will be held in Seville (Spain) from the 24th to the 26th of October 2023. The conference is organized by the Fair and Sustainable Economy Directorate of the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (EC-JRC) in collaboration with the Science Technology and Innovation Directorate of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
The purpose of CONCORDi 2023 is to provide decision-makers with cutting-edge scientific research on how industrial innovation can contribute to achieving competitive sustainability in the European Union.
This year's conference will focus on "Industrial innovation for Open Strategic Autonomy – Leaving no one and no place behind" in the context of the ongoing transition to a green and digital economy. This theme is central to the EU's industrial policy agenda and is expected to inform its policy priorities, including the Industrial strategy for Europe, the New European Innovation Agenda, the European Green Deal, and the recent Green Deal Industrial Plan, as well as Strategic Autonomy and Technological Leadership policy objectives.

- Industrial innovation to alleviate vulnerability and reinforce technological sovereignty in strategic sectors
- Industrial innovation in critical technologies and for the reduction of key dependencies
- Identification of territorial opportunities linked to industrial innovation for competitiveness, regional cohesion, and social inclusion
- Creation and growth of firms in prominent technological fields.
