ETP 2010: Working Together on Societal Challenges - Conference Report
The European Technology Platforms (ETPs) 2010 Conference, held in Brussels on 11-12 May 2010, brought together around 450 representatives of national authorities, EU associations, academia, civil society and other stakeholders active in R&D and innovation. They discussed some of the major challenges facing European society, debated how ETPs can best contribute to their solution, and considered how the role of ETPs should evolve to enable them to do so. ETP 2010 was an important milestone in the development of the Europe 2020 strategy, which foresees a re-focusing of EU research and innovation (R&I) policy on societal challenges.
