Excellence without borders
Excellence without borders : R&D cooperation across the innovation divide
Time: 15.30 - 19:00
On 15 October the VSNU (Association of Universities in The Netherlands) and Neth-ER, in cooperation with the Permanent Representation of The Netherlands to the EU, will organise the network event ‘Excellence without Borders: R&D Cooperation Across the Innovation Divide’.
Reaching across the divide
Dutch universities strongly support the notion of excellence across borders and of talent that knows no boundaries. It is therefore that with this event we aim to break down barriers, wherever they may exist, and build bridges where needed.
Besides networking, several high-level speakers will address the above mentioned issue. Among those speakers will be:
- Wepke Kinga Deputy Permanent Representative of The Kingdom of The Netherlands
- Alexander Micovčin
Deputy Permanent Representative of the Slovak Republic
- Karl Dittrich
President of VSNU Association of Universities in The Netherlands
- Marek Šmid
Vice-President of the Slovak Rectors‘ Conference
A detailed programme can be found in the attachment.
This network event aims connecting researchers, policy advisors and other staff of knowledge institutes from countries that are eligible under the Horizon 2020 Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation actions and from The Netherlands. In addition, national and regional authorities from these countries are cordially invited as well.
