Presidency Events on Sectoral Policies


During the Austrian Presidency in the second half of 2018, a total of 14 events supported the pertinent specialist discourse in many sectoral policy fields. These expert conferences underlined the interrelation between education, research, technological development, innovation, and all other policy areas. The first of these was 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 that took place from 4 to 6 July  in Innsbruck. The last of these events was 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 of these events.
