Horizon 2020 and the future of European research

Jun 21, 2012

International Auditorium, Brussels, belgium

After years of anticipation, the Commission’s proposal for Horizon 2020, the follow-up to Framework 7, is finally out. This document will define the direction, scope and financing of research in Europe for the next decade. However, the controversies are already starting. Should the EU fund basic research or innovation? Can innovation be stimulated effectively with EU funds? How can the funding process be simple for applicants, yet accountable to taxpayers? And will Horizon 2020 help Europe get out of the economic crisis and remain internationally competitive in science? This conference will take a critical look at all these issues, and distinguished speakers will give the audience an inside view of developments as Europe’s research world prepares for Horizon 2020.

As an attendee you will:

  • GAIN crucial insights into how Horizon 2020 will work
  • VOICE your feedback or concerns on the proposal
  • DISCOVER how and where the Commission will focus resources
  • ACCESS important movers and shakers in European policy and funding
  • PARTICIPATE in detailed discussions on Europe’s research and innovation landscape
