EYP Austria's European Future Forum: Horizon Europe, Research and Innovation
On 17 November, EYP Austria is hosting its second European Future Forum, this time with the topic "Horizon Europe, Research and Innovation: where should science lead us?".
Over the course of the English-language programme lasting from 9:00 to 13:00 CET (this will include breaks), there will be an expert talk on the topic by our special guest Philipp Brugner, and discussions about possible visions of the future within smaller groups among the participants.
The event’s main focus will be Horizon Europe, the biggest multinational funding programme for research and innovation that will finance thousands of projects with a budget of €95.5 billion until 2027. We want to examine the origin and the structure of the programme and focus on the political, economic and social relevance of the research it will fund. In connection, we will also talk about the scientific work environment in a European context and in close relationship with the EU, which shall give school and university students valuable insights for their career orientation.
Our expert Philipp Brugner is leading project manager for EU-funded projects at ZSI - Centre for Social Innovation and writes commentaries on European politics for newspapers in Austria and Switzerland.
The event is taking place online and open to all interested individuals aged 16 and over. You can currently register either as a group of four students from the same school or as an individual participant for the event.
Event reportThe European Future Forum: Horizon Europe, Research and Innovation was a 4-hour online event with around 115 participants. It was kicked off by a crash course on the EU that focused on the different bodies and their role in research and innovation policy. This was followed by an expert talk with Philipp Brugner (https://www.zsi.at/en/users/190) about Horizon Europe and its political, economic and social implications. After this, 2-hour group discussions on 6 different subtopics took place, with the goal of formulating visions for the future of research and innovation in the EU. The results of these group discussions were then presented to the rest of the participants, who could ask questions or make points, marking the end of the event.
