Eureka 35 years celebration turns into a Eureka’s birthday week

Originally planned to take place in Vienna’s stunning Hofburg on 22 March, due to the pandemic situation, the Austrian Chair reinvented the celebration as a week-long series of podcasts with leading public and private sector thinkers on research and innovation.

In 1985, visionary politicians and policymakers came together with a seemingly simple idea: to mobilise the huge innovative potential of European businesses and academia through public support and promotion of cross border collaboration in applied R&D.

Thirty-five years and 7,500 R&D projects later, Eureka’s birthday week has celebrated those great visionaries, and the international collaborative projects and 48 billion euro of public-private investment that their vision has so far spawned. But it was also an opportunity to look to the future, to a new Eureka - and to the crucial role it has to play in the emerging European Innovation Area.
