It will help Europe to develop new technologies to address the most pressing societal challenges, and to bring them on the market. The New European Innovation Agenda is designed to position Europe as a leading player on the global innovation scene. Europe wants to be the place where the best talent work hand in hand with the best companies and where deep tech innovation thrives and creates breakthrough innovative solu- tions across the continent that will inspire the world. By leading on innovation, in particular on the new wave of deep-tech innovation requiring break- through R&D and large capital investment, Europe will reinforce its central role in shaping the green and digital transitions. Deep tech innovation will rein- force Europe's technological leadership and gen- erate innovative solutions to pressing societal chal- lenges, such as climate change and cyberthreats. Such innovations are likely to irrigate and benefit all sectors from renewable energy to agri-tech, from construction to mobility and health, thereby tack- ling food security, reducing energy dependency, improving people's health, and making our econo- mies more competitive. The severe consequences of Russia's war of aggression has given these issues even greater urgency and prompted strate- gic policy changes to ensure the EU's prosperity and security. The New Innovation Agenda will in particular: • Improve access to finance for European start-ups and scale-ups, for example, by mobilising untapped sources of private capital and simplifying listing rules • Improve the conditions to allow innovators to experiment with new ideas through regulatory sandboxes • Help create "regional innovation valleys" that will strengthen and better connect innovation players through Europe, including in regions lagging behind • Attract and retain talent in Europe, for example by training 1 million deep tech talents, increas- ing support for women innovators and innovat- ing with start-up employees' stock options • Improve the policy framework through clearer terminology, indicators and data sets, as well as policy support to Member States.
