This event will be held as part of the Science Week at the European Parliament (5th- 7th February).

This year the Science Week will be composed of several elements; the 'Brussels Week' of the MEP-scientist pairing scheme, 'Science meets Parliaments', a joint initiative of the Joint Research Centre and the Panel for the Future of Science and Technology (STOA) to strengthen links between scientists and policy-makers at the EU, national and regional level; the European Science-Media Hub activities and the STOA-ERC event which will bring together policy-makers and ERC grantees.

The STOA-ERC event will bring Members of the European Parliament and ERC grantees together to discuss 3 topics: smart agriculture/food, CRISPR and migration/demography to underline how Europe’s future can be shaped by basic research.

Follow us on Twitter under #ERCSTOA.

The event is open to the public.
