Research meets diplomacy: Europe as a Global Actor
5 June 2014, Brussels
On 5 June 2014, DG Research and Innovation, in cooperation with the FLASH-IT project, organized a conference on “Research Meets Diplomacy: Europe as a Global Actor”. This conference was on the one hand intended to take stock of the rich research financed under the Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities programme under FP7. On the other hand, through an exchange between researchers and EU foreign policy-makers, ideas were discussed on future topics for research on the EU as a global actor under Societal Challenge 6 “Europe in a changing world - Inclusive, Innovative and Reflective Societies” of Horizon 2020. The debates concentrated on three major themes:
the EU’s capacities as a global actor,
the EU’s neighbourhood with an emphasis on the Mediterranean, and
the EU’s role in the wider world and key global challenges, focussing on two regions that have been less in the spotlight: Latin America and the Caribbean and the Pacific.
The event brought together over 120 participants from the public and private sector, including many academics and policy-makers.

Climate change, environmental protection, sustainable development and energy security are just a few of the problems which comprise global challenges and can only be tackled by intense, coordinated and collaborative global efforts.
Developing the next generation of scientists and engineers
3 June 2014, London
This seminar looks at the challenges in increasing the number of young people who choose Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects and careers. It follows recent concerns about the lack of STEM graduates taking up careers in these subjects and is also timed to follow the recent publication of the House of Commons Science and Technology Select Committee inquiry into Women in STEM careers, with just 15.5% of the STEM workforce being made up of women.
Planned sessions look at ways in which government and the HE sector can encourage more young people to study STEM subjects at all levels of education, as well as ways to improve careers guidance for those who do. Delegates will also have the opportunity to discuss the outcomes and recommendations made in the Perkins review, published in November 2013. We are delighted that Professor John Perkins, Chief Scientific Advisor, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and Christopher Millward, Associate Director, North, HEFCE have agreed to deliver keynote addresses at this seminar.
