A Science|Business conference on making research and innovation open to all


In its €94.1 billion Horizon Europe proposal, the European Commission has made clear its intention to push the European R&D world towards a more open method of working.  Open science, open access and the open science cloud services will make research more efficient, it says. Open innovation will make industry more productive. And if it hopes to lead global technology markets, Europe’s science and innovation programmes must be open to international partners.

That’s the theory. But how realistic is it? What needs to be done, to realise this vision?

This open, webcast conference will take stock of progress to date, and discuss the steps ahead.
