On 9 December 2015, EARTO held its 2nd “Innovation School” focusing on the challenges and opportunities of Open Science and Open Innovation (see agenda). This event was dedicated to EU policy makers and gathered 30 representatives of different European Commission DGs, European Parliament, Council, Committee of Regions and National Permanent Representations to the EU.
EARTO experts’ presentations were based on the following EARTO papers published in 2015:
The EARTO Paper on Open Science/Open Innovation
The EARTO Voting Recommendations on the EP Draft Report “Towards a Digital Single Market Act”
The EARTO Proposed Amendments to the Draft Motion for the Resolution “Towards a thriving data-driven economy”
EARTO plans to organise other Innovation School sessions to encourage and keep an open dialogue with EU policy makers on key issues related to Europe’s research & innovation policy.
