Conference 4 – 9 March 2013

EU Science: Global Challenges, Global Collaboration

The European Parliament hosted a five-day conference on “EU Science: Global Challenges, Global Collaboration” (ES:GC2) during the week of 4 March 2013. The conference brought together science policymakers, scientists and industry representatives from 100 different countries and placed EU research at the centre of the international response to global challenges.

The aims of the conference were to encourage worldwide collaboration in science, to explore how Horizon 2020 could enable an effective scientific response to global challenges, and to stimulate new partnerships with a view to increasing international participation in Horizon 2020.

To hear the presentation of Mike Rogers (European Commission Unit Training and mobility of researchers; Marie Curie) on "International Challenges for Global Capacity Building" please see minutes (18':00'' – 26':10'') of the recording.
