Priorities of the Slovenian Presidency in Science, Research & Innovation
Friday 7th May 2021 from 10:00 to 11:30 CEST (Brussels time)
Starting on 1 July, Slovenia will preside over the Council of the European Union for the second time. Slovenia’s presidency has established a greener EU as one of its key priority themes. Following the European Commission’s 2021 Work Programme, it will engage in addressing climate change and support initiatives to reach environmental goals. The green transformation will be paired with further efforts to strengthen the bloc’s resilience to different kinds of crises, which include pandemics, cyber-attacks, migration and economic crises, among others.
This particular webinar will place special emphasis on the priorities of science and technology and related disciplines. Times of crises can offer a renewed resolve and the coming decade can offer new opportunities which can be used efficiently to achieve substantial sustainable progress in strategic areas such as upgrading research infrastructure, as well as other activities supporting and enabling excellence in science and research.
The event is a part of the Brussels-based IGLO (Informal Group of RTD Liaison Offices) activities organized throughout the year. The aim of the network and this event is to facilitate and strengthen interactions, exchange of information and cooperation between IGLO members, European institutions, and relevant stakeholders.
