The European Parliament will host a five-day conference on "EU Science: Global Challenges, Global Collaboration" (ES:GC2), starting on March 4th, 2013, in Brussels.
The conference is organised in association with the Irish Council Presidency and in conjunction with Mr Sean Kelly MEP and other Members of the European Parliament.
The aim of the conference is to promote global cooperation on access to research infrastructures and to facilitate networking between Europe-based researchers with potential research partners worldwide.
It will bring together science policymakers, scientists and industry representatives from around the world and will place EU research at the centre of the international response to global challenges.
The conference takes place at a time when many research ideas and project proposals are being put forward. Its purpose is partly to increase international participation in Horizon 2020 Europe and maximise Europe's contribution to global science cooperation.
Recently confirmed participants include:
- Taoiseach Enda Kenny, Prime Minister of Ireland
- Legendary Astronaut, Buzz Aldrin
- Canadian Minister of State for Science & Technology, Gary Goodyear
