Science|Business Annual Network Conference

February 8 - February 9

This conference covers four main areas: (1) programme & format; (2) video contributions; (3) input workshops; and (4) registration & outreach.

 

1/ Programme & Format.  Given COVID uncertainties in BXL and beyond, the February conference will be fully online. If the situation allows, S|B will still explore an in-person networking event – but no decision until January.

Two immediate consequences: first, to ensure a dynamic, engaging event, we are streamlining the agenda from what was discussed in October – shorter sessions, fewer speakers and increased visual content (on which more below). Second, we will make our September conference a formal Network event, to create more speaking opportunities for your senior representatives.  NB: September theme / title will be the S|B Sustainable Tech Summit, and will be preceded by the Annual Presidents’ Dinner, COVID permitting.

2/ Video contributions.  Nonetheless, they still want to showcase as many S|B members as possible in February.  Thus, we are inviting you to record short videos to be broadcast during the event, on one of the following topics:

  • For institutional heads – a 1 minute response to either of these questions:
  • What is the greatest challenge that science needs to solve before the end of Horizon, and how?
  • In which area(s) should Europe aim to be a world-leader in innovation, and why?

 

  • For leading scientists or innovators who have secured ERC or EIC grants – a 2 minute “elevator pitch” of their work, project or company, structured in response to these questions:
  • Which complex problem is your research / innovation / enterprise addressing?
  • What makes your approach unique?
  • How will your work change the world if you succeed?

 

Videos will need to be high quality, high resolution files – and can include a lead-in slide with your organisation’s logo and identity.  Submission deadline = FRIDAY 21 JANUARY!
