The Guild discussion: 'Science and Innovation for Europe's Future: Towards a strategic approach'

On 3 July The Guild of European Research-Intensive Universities organises an interdisciplinary debate on how science and innovation can – and should – help formulate a vision for Europe.

Jean-Eric Paquet, Director-General for Research and Innovation at the European Commission, will join in a discussion on the Strategic Planning Process and how it can identify the key challenges that Horizon Europe should address.  In addition, representatives of The Guild’s academic community will also propose research priorities that can have a great impact for European citizens related to Horizon Europe’s clusters for Health; Culture, Creativity and Inclusive Society; and Digital, Industry and Space.

Alongside discussing what challenge-driven research is urgently needed, our panelists will also focus on the core elements that will ensure Horizon Europe’s success: fostering true interdisciplinarity, striking a balance between frontier-led and applied research, and strengthening the links between research and innovation.
