International R&D : Horizon Europe and the world

30/01/2019
ZABALA is a proud partner of the upcoming annual Science|Business Framework conference and webcast on 5 February 2019. It will discuss the emerging opportunity landscape, and how this can best be harnessed across sectors and regions through breakthrough science, technologies and policy frameworks.

Around the world, cross-border research and development (R&D) deals are on the rise, both in public and private systems. International co-publications, global budgets, industry/university/public partnerships – all have soared in the past decade. Europe, with its Horizon research and innovation (R&I) programmes, is a leader in this trend, but the US, Canada, China, Japan and other big spenders are also on the hunt for ambitious ideas and partners. Important questions are also being raised about the future role of R&D in the UN SDGs, climate change and other international development ambitions.

Against this backdrop, are we entering a new era of global cooperation, a Republic of Science & Technology? This Science|Business Network conference will be an international meeting place to discuss the emerging opportunity landscape, and how this can best be harnessed across sectors and regions through breakthrough science, technologies and policy frameworks.

The conference, which includes ZABALA as an official partner, is open to the public and will take place at ING-MARNIX (Rue du Trône 1, 1000 Brussels). It will also be webcast online on the day on the Science Business website 

Please register for the webcast HERE by 4 Frebruary 2019

The agenda (available here) will also include a Q&A session with Jean-Eric Paquet, Director General, DG Research and Innovation, European Commission.
