Presidency Events on Sectoral Policies


During the Austrian Presidency, a total of 14 events will support the pertinent specialist discourse in many sectoral policy fields. These expert conferences will underline the interrelation between education, research, technological development, innovation, and all other policy areas. The first of these is the High Level Group on Education and Training, shortly before the start of the Presidency, followed by the WIRE Conference in the field of Structural Funds from 4 to 6 July  in Innsbruck. The last of these events is going to be the informal meeting of the Education Committee on 6-7 December in Vienna.

In this section you can find links to all Austrian Presidency RTI events focussing on sectoral policies, as well as the documentation of the outcome, once the events have taken place.
