Stimulating participation in Horizon 2020

On 4 March 2014 five Science Parks from Västra Götaland, Sweden, gather in the European Parliament to discuss the role of Science Parks as facilitators for regional innovation. You are warmly invited to this seminar organised by Region Västra Götaland and hosted by Member of Parliament Kent Johansson (ALDE Horizon 2020 negotiator, Sweden).

With the start of Horizon 2020 these Science Parks have strengthened their role as intermediaries bringing together industry, academia and public  organisations to form internationally competitive consortia. The seminar will gather European policy makers, national and regional authorities as well as representatives from industry and academia.
