IES Academic Director Luk Van Langenhove will act as a discussant on Europe’s future R&I policy

On 22 March, IES Academic Director Luk Van Langenhove will act as discussant to Prof. Luc Soete’s talk on “Europe’s future R&I policy – Visions and values for Openness”.

This event is the last of a Tour d’ Europe, organized by the E.C., in the 28 capitals of the EU in order to discuss the outcome of a report prepared by the RISE independent expert advisory group to Commissioner Carlos Moedas. 

The questions addressed by Soete and Van Langenhove are: Which are the vision and values guiding research and innovation for the future of Europe? How can the EU be more responsive to citizens’ needs in a policy of Open Science, Open Innovation and Open to the World? How can the EU and national policies respond to societal challenges and the global Sustainable Development Goals?

The event is organized by the Belgian Science Policy Office and can be attended on invitation only.

The agenda of the event is available here.
