Conference „Embedding digital into societal challenges“

This conference, which will take place in Brussels, aims to provide input towards policy discussions relevant to policymakers and decision-makers in the EU institutions, Member States, and stakeholders. It relates to some of the barriers to embedding digital solutions into the societal challenges posed by the EU research and innovation (R&I) framework programme Horizon 2020, and the next framework programme. Another aim is to showcase Estonian scientists’ and research-based enterprises’ contributions in addressing these obstacles. The conference will also be an opportunity to find partners for cooperation.

Organisers: the Estonian Research Council and its Estonian Liaison Office for EU RTD in Brussels, the Permanent Representation of Estonia to the EU and the Ministry of Education and Research in Estonia and the Network of Universities from the Capitals of Europe (UNICA), who has an expertise in international cooperation with universities and the field of media and communication.

Target group: 100-150 people, primarily policymakers and decision-makers at the EU institutions, including high officials from the European Commission, representatives of the relevant professional associations, R&I offices, attachés from Member States, representatives of universities, and others in the field.
