European Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation Carlos Moedas presented his priorities ‘Open Science, Open Innovation and Open to the World’ in June 2015. Part of his thinking is to build a European Innovation Council (EIC), which is welcomed by UAS4EUROPE. This contribution is to support the Commissioner in setting up an EIC. UAS4EUROPE is convinced that it is in the interest of Europe as a whole to be as innovative as possible in order to bring continuous economic growth. The European knowledge economy provides the intellectual capital to be able to be a top innovator. However, good innovation governance, adequate funding mechanisms, overcoming regulatory barriers, skills investment for innovation and proper financing and budget are the five pillars of importance to achieve the goal of being a top innovator. When successfully tackled by the EIC, UAS4EUROPE believes that Europe can be the future top innovator of the world.
