ERA Conference 2012 “Fostering Efficiency, Excellence and Growth, From the public consultation to the completion of ERA”
Jan 30, 2012
On 30 January 2012 the European Commission is organizing the ERA Conference 2012 “Fostering Efficiency, Excellence and Growth, From the public consultation to the completion of ERA”.
From 13 September until 30 November 2011, the European Commission ran a public consultation on the ERA Framework which has collected the views of a broad range of research stakeholders on the main bottlenecks to creating a genuine single market for knowledge, research and innovation. These views need to be taken into account in preparing the Commission's ERA Framework proposal.
The ERA Conference 2012 on 30 January 2012 in Brussels is an important milestone in the ongoing preparations of the ERA Framework. In it, the responses to public consultation and their implications will be presented and discussed. The event will provide a platform for prominent stakeholders to testify and discuss further where they see major bottlenecks and help to mobilise a broad consensus and support for the way forward via the ERA Framework. It will gather around 400 participants from the broader research stakeholder community. The event will start with two plenary sessions, one giving prominence to the perspectives of different research stakeholders – researchers, research performing organisations, funders, etc., and one aimed at assessing the economic implications of completing ERA in terms of growth and innovation.
