Date - 26/10/2021 - 27/10/2021
The Slovenian Presidency of the Council of the European Union is pleased to invite you to one of our Presidency flagship events in the field of research and innovation, the Presidency Conference ”New European Research Area – Towards a Responsible Knowledge-Driven Society of the 3rd Millennium”, taking place on 26 and 27 October 2021.
The ambition to create a single, borderless space for research, innovation and technology across the EU, is being revitalised. The Conference intends to produce ERA conference recommendations for the better implementation of the new ERA. The Conference will, through mutual learning and knowledge exchange, contribute to better integration of the ERA in key stakeholder communities, industrial sectors and policy-makers on regional, national and EU levels, in particular those responsible for research and also from broader innovation ecosystems.
The complete schedule of the Conference is available at the dedicated new ERA Conference website. If you are not yet convinced, please see the confirmed list of speakers, moderators, panellists and rapporteurs, taking part in the discussions or view some of the pre-event video contributions by the ERA stakeholders.
The Conference will be conducted in hybrid format (both physically and virtually) and we are expecting up to 170 participants to join us in person at the Brdo Congress Centre. In order to ensure equal and the widest possible participation of all the relevant ERA stakeholders, we will provide the possibility of virtual participation in all parts of the Conference (including the breakout sessions) through web streaming and interactive social media tools.
If you wish to secure active participation (in-person or virtual) at the Conference please register here. If you intend to participate at the conference in person, please consider registering as early as possible, as once the number of 170 registered participants is reached we will close the registration for in-person participation. Please note only registered participants will be allowed to access the conference venue or receive a connection link for active online participation. Of course, anyone will be able to follow us through social media and web streaming.
Please find attached the Practical information note (PIN) with all the necessary logistical details for your travel and stay to Slovenia. A PIN for online participants will be provided in due course.
