In autumn 2017 and winter 2018, the RISE (Research, Innovation, Science Experts) group of advisors to Commissioner for Research, Science & Innovation, Carlos Moedas, are touring European capitals to meet with independent experts and think tanks in the field of research and innovation.
The Tour d’Europe takes place in the context of President Juncker' initiative of a wide and open reflection on the future direction of the European project.
The RISE Tour d’Europe will focus on the field of research and innovation and its role in wider European policy. This involves a dialogue between the RISE group and independent think tanks, not directly connected to national administrations. The participants will be policy advisers, economists, academics, and intellectuals. Tour d'Europe events are invitation only and not open to public participation.
The RISE group will use the tour to present the findings of their report “Europe’s future: Open Innovation, Open Science, Open to the World”. The national hosts will put forward the main economic and policy perspectives of their country.
A final report on Opening R&I for EU’s future will be presented after the end of the tour in 2018.
The Sofia event was co-hosted by MOVE.BG
