Seeking a sustainable future for European Science

Ateneu Barcelonès, C/Canuda, 6 Barcelona
Meeting Room “Oriol Bohigas”
“European Science is dead: long live European Science!” This provocative slogan
might be adequate to describe the current situation of European research. The
lingering crisis has stricken science’s investment and human resources in several
countries, and even the European research budget. Cuts have hit hard, especially
countries from southern Europe. However, science is definitely the way out from
the recession. It will help Europe maintain its position as a global cultural
reference, generate a knowledge-based economy, compete at the international
level, as well as maintain and improve the quality of life of European citizens. This
event brings together some of the most engaged scientists involved in drawing a
better future for European science. The meeting aims at achieving a balance
between evaluating the needs to address the current difficulties, and devising the
next steps, to reach the path to recovery.
