European Research 2002

The European Research Area and the Framework Programme

Brussels, 11-12-13 November 2002

Participants' forum

Why a Participants' forum?

Moving beyond the approach of the 1999 FP5 launch conference, the Commission decided this year to dedicate one part of the conference programme to the participants themselves.

The resulting Forum presents events designed and organised by a wide variety of associations on themes that are topical, cutting-edge and/or controversial.

The aim is to allow the ‘real actors’ - i.e. scientists, industrial researchers, research users, decision-makers, organisations and associations, and others working in or affected by research and technology - to propose meetings, discussions and exchanges on subjects not necessarily related to the Sixth Framework Programme.

In this way the Commission encouraged a more ‘bottom-up’ approach which would involve a wider range of organisations and a greater variety of issues.

A call for proposals was published in March 2002, inviting participants to propose workshops, round tables, etc. on issues chosen by them. 250 proposals were received in time. Four main selection criteria were used: potential interest to the scientific community; a European and/or international dimension; relevance to European society; and the participation of young scientists.

The catalogue shows that the events cover a wide range of scientific and technological areas, relevant to both European research and European society at large. They will therefore contribute to reinforcing the European Research Area.

There are 80 events in the participant's forum. You can download two small PDF files (12kB each), one with the events sorted by subject area (keyword) the other sorted by organisation, or the entire catalogue (PDF 207kB) with times, venues and speakers. You can also click on any session title below to see the details.
