Who needs blue sky research? The industry view
Most of the technological advances of our age started somewhere in scientific research. But as the complexity and the costs of science rise, how will we keep this vital pipeline of ideas from lab to market running smoothly?
Confirmed guest include Prof. Jean-Pierre Bourguignon, President of the European Research Council (ERC), Alessandro Curioni, Vice President of IBM Europe, Walter Weigel, Vice President of Huawei European Research Institute and Anita Krohn Traaseth CEO of Innovation Norway.
This ERC=Science² policy dinner, organised by Science I Business in collaboration with EIRMA and the ERC will foster exchanges of views between industrialists, researchers, university presidents and policy makers in a small and lively configuration.
Venue: ING Building, Brussels
