The conference, co-organised by the JRC and the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the Slovak Republic, will present the cooperation activities between the JRC and its Slovak partners including researchers, policy makers and business users.

Date: 10 June 2014
Venue: Hotel Bôrik, Bratislava, Slovak Republic

Objectives of the day

The objective will be to strengthen this cooperation in strategic areas, which will bring added value to Slovak science as well as help to integrate it even better within the European Research Area. In addition the partners will aim to identify areas, where cooperation between the JRC and the Slovak Republic will be complementary to the objectives of the national strategy “Through knowledge towards prosperity - Research Innovation Strategy for Smart Specialisation of the Slovak Republic“ (RIS3 SK) approved by the Slovak Government on 13 November 2013. This is relevant especially in areas where higher involvement of science and technology in solving economic and social challenges is called for.

The event will put specific focus on two thematic areas, which are identified as priorities by the Slovak Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport:
•    Sustainable transport, fuels and technologies
•    Nuclear safety and nuclear decommissioning
