EU-U.S .Summit on Science, Technology and Sustainable Economic Growth - Post Carbon Transitions, Visions and Challenges

Sep 29, 2011


This conference concludes a year-long dialogue between Europe and the U.S. on science, innovation and sustainable economic growth. The purpose of this dialogue is to enhance our understanding of the ways in which science and innovation affect sustainable economic growth, to identify impediments to the flow of science from the “bench” to applications; and to explore policy options that might enhance the impact of science on economic activity and societal needs. This Brussels conference is largely based on the PACT, VLEEM, PASHMINA, POLINARES, GILDED and SPREAD European research results. The "World and European Energy and Environment Transition Outlook" report (WETO-T) will be distributed at this occasion.
