Venue: Google 25 Massachusetts Ave NW #900, Washington, DC 20001
The Discovery Lab at the European Research Day 2017 in partnership with EURAXESS North America and Google will celebrate and promote Europe as a hub for research and innovation through strategic interdisciplinary training workshops with the overarching theme being ‘Research Career Development’. You can find the full programme here.
This one-day event is open to the European Scientific Diasporas in North America and will be dedicated to explore opportunities for partnership building between researchers and industries from both sides of the Atlantic. Through a co-creative and highly interactive workshop, participants in the Discovery Lab will explore the strengths, opportunities, aspirations and results of transatlantic collaboration in Research and Innovation, share the best practices for good partnership building and shape the future Transatlantic ICT Forum as the community of practice to enhance collaboration between Europe, the US and Canada.
The results of the Discovery Lab will provide insights to the Transatlantic ICT Forum and its Working Groups on key thematic areas in ICT: cybersecurity, policy and regulations and funding mechanisms, which will benefit the transatlantic dialogues for cooperation in research and innovation.
