Workshop on the internationalisation of R&D
The JRC is organising a two-day workshop on the internationalisation of Research and Development (R&D), in cooperation with Turkish partners METU TEKPOL (Middle East Technical University Science and Technology Policies Research Centre) and TUBITAK (The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey). This workshop will take place in Ankara (Turkey) on the 25th and 26th of May 2010.
In an interconnected world, research cannot be conducted in isolation. In R&D, interaction with other parts of the world has become essential to respond to global challenges as well as to increase and sustain economic competitiveness. In this way, the internationalisation of R&D can contribute to the prosperity and the generation of knowledge within the EU and beyond.
The aim of the Workshop on the Internationalisation of R&D and Policy Outcomes at Governmental and Institutional Level is to identify the challenges faced by the internationalization of R&D and increased collaboration both at public and private level.
Over the two days of the workshop, there will be plenary presentations by invited speakers, as well as poster sessions, where participants will have the opportunity to present related research activities. JRC Enlargement and Integration funding will assure participation of representatives from the enlargement and neighbourhood countries. The event will have a strong policy orientation and is targeted both at policy makers and at the research community.
