Destination Europe: Your Research and Innovation Opportunities
20 January 2012, Cambridge, Massachusetts (USA)
This high-level Conference will showcase Europe's vibrant and attractive science, technology and innovation culture; the excellent funding opportunities Europe provides for career development and the challenging positions in world-class environments offered by European industry and research organisations. When we look at the picture of all the opportunities available, both at national and European level, including the attractive opportunities for women researchers, it is truly impressive.
Presentations by high-level speakers, representing some of the major funding organisations and research intensive industries in Europe, will be illustrated by testimonials from researchers who have taken advantage of the opportunities offered to develop their careers in Europe.
Speakers will include: Maire Geoghegan-Quinn, the EU Commissioner for Research and Innovation; Professor Tim Hunt, Nobel Laureate; Professor Donald Dingwell, Secretary General of the European Research Council and many other inspiring leaders in the field.
The target audience is researchers of all nationalities based in the US, opinion leaders and representatives from leading US universities; multipliers from EU and national networks working in the USA and representatives from the science diplomacy community and the media.
All are welcome. Participation is free but registration is obligatory.
