Web Summit started as a simple idea in 2010: Let’s connect the technology community with all industries, both old and new. It seemed to resonate. Web Summit has grown to become the “largest technology conference in the world”.
No conference has ever grown so large so fast. But we also pride ourselves in organising the “best technology conference on the planet”.
EASME replaced the EACI (Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation). It has been set-up by the Commission to manage a number of EU programmes on its behalf:
-Horizon 2020: Research
-COSME: Competitiveness of Enterprises and Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs)
-LIFE: Environment and climate action
-EMFF: The Maritime and Fisheries Fund
-Intelligent Energy – Europe
-The Eco-innovation initiative
