A High-level Belgian Presidency Conference in collaboration with the European Commission, invite you to this mind-blowing and brain-dazzling event.
To support the further development and consolidation of the European Research Area (ERA), one of the main challenges in science and technology is to ensure a high quantity and quality of human resources. In close collaboration with the European commission (DG Research), the Belgian Presidency of the European Council organizes a conference on Mobility and Careers of Researchers.
The conference will take place on 9-10 November 2010 and aims to take stock of the progress made in the implementation of the European Partnership for Researchers and of the "Scientific Visa", to highlight gaps and challenges in the EPR implementation, and to identify focus areas for the near future.
Policy makers, academics, representatives of industry and civil society will share experiences, best practices and main achievements. The conference conclusions will be made into policy recommendations.
