Research Strategies: Europe 2030 and the next Framework Programme
Shota Rustaveli National Science Foundation disseminates information on the planned conference: Research Strategies: Europe 2030 and the next Framework Programme
What will Europe, and its science and technology, be like in 2030 and beyond? How are companies, universities and governments preparing for a better future? What should the EU do to help them? As the European Commission is just now beginning to draft its next big R&I effort, Framework Programme 9, Science|Business offers a unique opportunity to debate policy options for the future.
Research strategy is the focus of this Science|Business Network conference. It will bring together a select group of corporate executives, university administrators and policy leaders from all over Europe and from all sectors/disciplines to:
- How will Brexit– who’s ‘in’ and who’s ‘out’? – affect research strategies, for the public and private sector?
- Discuss among peers the Commission's newly prepared scenarios for the future
- Analyse how they will affect R&D strategies of companies, universities and governments
- Deliver recommendations on how the EU should shape its own R&I programmes for the future
Workshops (group discussions, driven by the R&I community). Strategy workshops: Workshops pooling expertise from the Commission, academia and industry to discuss scenarios for Security, Health, Energy, ICT. How should companies, universities and government prepare for the future? What main challenges will R&D managers, university administrators, R&I policy makers have to deal with? Policy workshops: How should the EU shape its own R&I programmes for the future? What will be the consequences from Brexit? How can FP9 support research and technology breakthroughs for a brighter future? Group discussions focusing on options for the next Framework Programme.
