1st EuroScience Policy Forum

Event date
June 29-30, 2021
Short description

The 1st EuroScience Policy Forum, with its four partners EuroScience, The Stockholm Trio University Alliance, The Wellcome Trust and the University of Vienna together with the Vienna Science and Technology Fund (WWTF) will discuss the changes in societal expectations on academic institutions and identify potential new pathways to a more sustainable academia in the future.


The EuroScience Policy Forum will provide an opportunity to reflect on what organizational frameworks are required to strike an appropriate balance between short-term responses to urgent societal needs and long-term academic visions and goals.  How can universities become more open to society and still maintain a protected space for knowledge generation? What support structures and assessment mechanisms need to be put into place to develop both healthy competition and fruitful collaboration across disciplinary boundaries? How can we ensure a research culture that fosters both excellence and inclusiveness? Striking the right balance among these various factors will be key to attracting the brightest minds to a future sustainable academia, indispensable for our societies not only to address their most urgent needs today but to flourish over time.
