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.
