2017-11-06 News

To mark the launch of their activities in the R&I sector, the Lithuanian RDI Liaison Office (LINO) and the Ukrainian Think Tanks Liaison Office in Brussels (UTTLOB) are pleased to invite you to an event on research and innovation (R&I) potential of Widening Member States and Associated Countries “Unlocking the EU Research and Innovation Potential through Excellence in Cooperation”.

The main aim of this event is to increase the awareness about R&I potential in Widening Member States of the European Union and Associated Countries by looking specifically into Lithuania’s and Ukraine’s examples. The view of European Commission on potential in these parts of Europe would really add a value to this event.

Through the particular examples of Lithuania and Ukraine, R&I experts and officials will discuss the challenges and needs of R&I projects in this geographical area, and exchange best practices to fully unlock their R&I potential. During the conference, the speakers will address the following questions:

  • What are the political, economic and R&I landscapes in Ukraine and Lithuania?
  • How cross-border cooperation can pave the way for excellence?
  • What is the future of R&I in the European Research Area?

The event will take place at the Permanent Representation of Lithuania to the EU (Rue Belliard 41-43, 1040 Brussels) on November 28 (Tuesday, 9:15-11:50).

The registration is open online until November 24.
