FET at the EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF) 2016

Manchester (UK)
From Saturday, 23 July, 2016 to Wednesday, 27 July, 2016
The EuroScience Open Forum is an international conference dedicated to broadly defined science and innovation. For the first time, Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) is organising two sessions at ESOF dedicated to science and policy related to FET.

The scientific session will present the FET programme spirit and will feature visionary scientists who will illustrate how FET research was instrumental for them to deliver scientific advances and to achieve technology breakthroughs that can change our life, economy and society. 

Based on first experience from the outcome of H2020 and on the recommendations from the FET Advisory Group, the policy session will debate on how to best create in Europe a fertile ground for multi-disciplinary research collaborations on future visionary technologies and on how to kick-start new European research and innovation eco-systems around them.

Both FET sessions will be held on the 25th of July.
