Austrian ERA Symposium: Unlocking the Value of Knowledge

09 Nov 2023
09 Nov 2023

This full-day on site event is dedicated to "Unlocking the Value of Knowledge“, focussing on Open Science and Knowledge Valorisation, two highly important, topical areas in research and innovation policy. The event marks the launch of a new series of annual symposia in Austria addressing the new European Research Area (ERA).

The ERA symposium welcomes a broad range of actors from the Austrian science, research and innovation community, high-level European Commission representatives as well as interested guests from other ERA countries. The annual ERA symposia are part of the implementation of the Austrian National Action Plan for the ERA (2022-2025) which is based on the EU’s ERA Policy Agenda (2022-2024).

This year‘s ERA Symposium is organized in conjunction with the Tour des Capitales of the European Commission to promote the guiding principles of knowledge valorisation, and with the Open Science Austria (OSA) Community Day. The event will thus provide an ideal opportunity for stakeholders from academia, business and civil society to engage with two core initiatives of the Austrian ERA Action Plan: Open Science and Knowledge Valorisation. It will offer a forum for feedback on the first results of these initiatives and encourages suggestions for the next steps in their implementation. 
Please find more information on the programme and speakers in the symposium agenda.

Representatives of the further ERA initiatives constituting the Austrian ERA Action plan are invited to present their activities in the poster area during the lunch break, further stimulating a broad exchange.  If you would be interested in contributing to the poster session, kindly contact us by 5 October 2023.

We look forward to welcoming you to the symposium!
