The EU Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, Carlos Moedas, will speak at the Royal Society of Edinburgh on the Future of EU Research and Innovation on Monday, 16 October 2017 at 6:00pm.   He will give his perspective on the future of research and innovation in Europe. Mr Moedas manages Horizon 2020 the EU Research and Innovation programme. Further information is available here.

“With the discussions on the design of the next framework programme underway, we find ourselves at a critical stage for research and innovation in Europe. Recently, European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker launched his White Paper on the future of Europe. Therein he illustrated five scenarios for the future, and in each he noted the integral role of research and innovation. However, these are not without their challenges. Notably, how to create an ecosystem in Europe that is research and innovation-friendly, and how to successfully bring our innovative ideas to market”.
