Inspireurope 2020 Virtual Stakeholder Forum

Monday, June 8, 2020 - 09:30 to 17:30
Virtual event

Registration is now open for the 2020 Inspireurope Stakeholder Forum. This is the first of three annual fora of the Inspireurope project, an EU-funded initiative to support, promote and integrate researchers at risk in Europe. 

The 2020 Stakeholder Forum was originally scheduled to take place at the Collège de France in Paris but due to the ongoing restrictions caused by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the event will now take place virtually.
It is planned that the Forum will be opened by Frédérique Vidal, French Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, and aims to facilitate exchange between key actors in research and innovation in Europe, including individual researchers, higher education networks, research funding agencies, EU and other policy makers in Europe. Speakers and participants will together explore today's challenges and opportunities in Europe for researchers at risk, including the implications of the global health pandemic on the lives and work of researchers at risk.
Please note that each of the Stakeholder Forum's sessions will be recorded and uploaded afterwards to the Inspireurope website.
