We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
This two-day conference will be opened by José Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission.
Bringing together actors from the world of science, industry and society, the conference aims to take stock of European achievements in science over the past 10 years. World-class scientists will debate with industrialists and political figures on key questions:
How will we keep healthy? How are we going to live, learn, work and interact in the future? How will we produce and consume and how will we manage resources?
Over the course of the two days, the role science, technology and innovation can play in societal well-being and its potential to stimulate growth, jobs and business development opportunities for Europe will be discussed.
The event takes place at the Fundação Champalimaud, Avenida Brasília, s/n, 1400 - 038 Lisboa, Portugal.
