The European Paradox

Europe has to meet the challenge to remain competitive and build economic and social progress, relying on knowledge and innovation. It possesses very good scientific knowledge (which generates new discoveries or advances), but little exploitation (innovation involving the use or development of that knowledge for a useful purpose).

When knowledge is used for some economic or social purpose it becomes innovation, and innovation is often the source of new ideas. Therefore, without exploitation there is little impact on progress.

A Paradigm Shift

Since 2014, the EU has changed its vision to help solve this paradox and has divided its main funding programme (Horizon 2020) into three pillars that serve its three main objectives:

Experts on Impact

expertos en impacto

The mission of Qi Europe is to help promote this paradigm shift to ensure the greatest possible impact of European R&D in its 9 areas (research, economic, ethical, social, environmental, private investment, political, educational and regulatory) by the design and implementation of business plans to exploit credible results, both in preparing projects and later in the international expansion of products and/or services developed by its clients.

The need to combine technical knowledge, market analysis and extensive experience in European R&D&I (Innovation) make Qi Europe the perfect partner to meet the European challenge: mastering the Impact criterion and contributing significantly to business growth, high quality job creation and improving the quality of life, environment and safety of its citizens.
