EuroTech Universities High Level Event: “Opening up Science, Advancing Innovation”

Event date
September 21, 2016
Short description

This event will showcase digitally-enabled, multidisciplinary projects led by the EuroTech Universities demonstrating the benefits of Open Science.
Drawing upon these specific experiences, the high level panel will discuss future directions for Open Science as well as their implications for EU policies and programmes.


The agenda will include:

  • Interactive high-level panel debate on future directions for Open Science as well as implications for EU policies and programmes, moderated by Jacki Davis
  • Demonstration and showcase of state-of-the-art solutions illustrating different dimensions of Open Science
  • Networking reception in the atmospheric Gallery of the Dinosaurs


Addressing societal challenges requires new ambitious models of research and innovation that are increasingly collaborative, interdisciplinary and enabled by data and digital technologies. With Open Science and the interim evaluation of HORIZON 2020 high on the EU agenda, it is vital to ensure an adequate policy framework and sufficient long-term financial commitment for these models of research that will prepare the ground for the innovations of tomorrow.

Leading universities of science and technology provide the key institutional settings to structure new research communities that transcend disciplinary boundaries, resulting in innovative ICT-enabled collaborations between all technologies and disciplines, including social sciences and humanities. Enriched through strong links with industry and a culture of entrepreneurship, universities of science and technology play a crucial role in bridging research and the market.
