Europe and the United States: A crucial moment for science cooperation
To mark the 50th anniversary of the inauguration of the European Commission's first research site in Ispra, Commissioner Janez Poto nik and JRC Director-General Roland Schenkel are launching a new JRC initiative that will become a centre-piece of the JRC's annual calendar.
Each year, a guest speaker will be invited to give a keynote public address on a scientific issue of global importance.
The JRC is delighted to announce that Dr. Alan Leshner, Chief Executive Officer of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and Executive Publisher of the journal Science has accepted an invitation to give the inaugural address and has chosen to speak on the subject of: "Europe and the United States: A crucial moment for science cooperation".
