The Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission and the European Council of Academies of Applied Sciences, Technologies and Engineering, Euro-CASE is organising a Round Table on the theme "The dialogue between science, technology and society around two cases: energy and climate change" to be held in Brussels on 19 September 2013.
The impact of science and technology is becoming increasingly important in many aspects of our societies. The organisation of a strong dialogue between scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, civil society and policy makers become more and more necessary to address major societal challenges of our time.
The objective of the Round Table is to identify how our societies perceive important technological changes and to analyse various key factors which are necessary to facilitate a better interaction between science, technology and society.
The round table is organised in two sessions:
- What are the main elements of the debate?
- How to promote a more efficient dialogue between science, innovation, technology and society?
