The Discovery Lab at the European Research Day 2017 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.
This Discovery Lab is open for registration. Save your seat TODAY!

ABOUT European Research Day 2017
European Research Day (ERD) is an event where European and non-European researchers meet, discuss and exchange concepts about their research projects, professional and personal experience in their respective diasporas and overall career paths. It also presents a unique networking opportunity through which they can meet researchers from their current regions to advance in their careers and explore opportunities to collaborate.
In 2017, EURAXESS North America is partnering with Google and DISCOVERY. This one-day event 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’.
