Science & innovation for Europe's future: Towards a strategic approach

Join us for a debate with Kurt Vandenberghe, Director for Research and Innovation at the European Commission. The event will be followed by a networking lunch.

How can science help us address current and future challenges? What can it achieve over the next fifteen years – and what should Horizon Europe prioritise? In this event, The Guild will engage in an interdisciplinary debate about how science and innovation can – and should – formulate a vision for Europe.

Kurt Vandenberghe, Director for Research and Innovation at the European Commission, will join us in a discussion on the Strategic Planning Process and how it can help identify the key challenges that Horizon Europe should address.  During the event, representatives of The Guild’s academic community will also propose research priorities that can have a great impact for European citizens related to Horizon Europe’s clusters for Health; Culture, Creativity and Inclusive Society; and Digital, Industry and Space.

Alongside discussing what challenge-driven research is urgently needed, our panelists will also focus on the core elements that will ensure Horizon Europe’s success: fostering true interdisciplinarity, striking a balance between frontier-led and applied research, and strengthening the links between research and innovation.
