On 26 and 27 October 2021, the Slovenian Presidency of the Council of the European Union is organising conference ”New European Research Area – Towards a Responsible Knowledge-Driven Society of the 3rd Millennium”, one of its Presidency flagship events in the field of research and innovation.
The Conference will focus on discussing the process of redesigning the European Research Area (ERA) policy framework, informing future European Commission policy initiatives, as well as feeding into policy-making work of the Council of the EU, the Member States and countries associated to Horizon Europe.
The first working session of the Conference will be the Ministerial policy roundtable, taking place on 26 October. With the valuable participation of stakeholders, it is intended to discuss the context of the new ERA, translation of ERA priorities into national actions and policy reforms, as well as the external dimensions of ERA, with the Ministers of the current (DE, PT, SI) and the upcoming (FR, CZ, SE) Trio Presidencies and Commissioner Gabriel.
The Ministerial roundtable will be followed by a Journey to the new ERA panel, to discuss the Pact for R&I in Europe, the ERA Policy Agenda and the future governance framework, with respected panellist and stakeholders’ interactive participation.
The second day, 27 October, will be fully dedicated to stakeholder discussions where four breakout sessions are foreseen, based on the three main ERA pillars – people, infrastructure, and economy – and an additional horizontal one on open science
