With its political leadership and policy priorities under review, Europe is at a crossroads in 2019. Pushing the frontiers of scientific knowledge and moderating technological progress is crucial in finding sustainable solutions to the major challenges which society is facing today.
Education is key in fostering a future generation that can promote the smart, sustainable and socially acceptable use of new technologies. Recognising the role of young talent, the Commission president-elect gave a strong signal in the right direction when recently unveiling her plans to bring education, research and innovation under one roof.
Coinciding with the arrival of the new Commissioners and the EU’s discussion on future policy priorities, our event will stimulate a timely debate on the potential of future engineering science and education – and the implications for European policies and programmes.
