Short description

Science|Business invites to a public, high-level conference on Thursday 10 November (09:00 – 16:00 CET) titled Talent retention: How can Europe tackle the challenges of brain drain and capacity building in EU13 countries? The conference will be staged physically at Grand Majestic Hotel in central Prague, and simultaneously live-streamed.


This major event, taking place during the Czech Presidency of the EU, will gather research and innovation (R&I) leaders – from the public and private sectors, and from European and national institutions – to debate the best ways, instruments and incentives to retain scientists and entrepreneurs in EU 13 countries. Headline speakers include EU Commissioner Mariya Gabriel, ESFRI Chair Jana Kolar and ERC Vice President Andrzej Jajszczyk.

Admission is free for both online and onsite participants, although with limited places available we encourage anyone wishing to attend in person to register as soon as possible.
