Understanding Europe’s new diversity: How can frontier research help Europeans live better together?

How can we shape a better Europe? That question has come into sharp focus – with Brexit, Catalonia, populism, migration, inequality, and other factors all challenging how people think about Europe. This event will debate how frontier research – in the social sciences and humanities – can help us understand and resolve these new social and political strains, and help shape how Europeans see themselves and their future together. Focus will be put on cities, democracy and migration.

This (by invitation only) event is organised by Science|Business in collaboration with the European Research Council (ERC), in the frame of ERC=Science², an EU-funded campaign aiming to promote the research funded by the ERC.
