Turkish R&D Day: Boosting R&D Excellence in Times of Economic Downturn: Insights from Turkey

Turkish R&D Day will be organised on 29 January 2009 by the Turkish Research and Business Organisations (TURBO)* and the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE) in the European Parliament.

29 January 2009 - 29 January 2009

Covering topics such as “Boosting R&D Excellence in Times of Economic Downturn: Insights from Turkey”, the Turkish R&D Day aims at increasing collaboration within R&D and Innovation related European Programmes such as FP7, CIP and EUREKA. It will bring together prominent politicians from Turkey and the European Parliament, high level Turkish and EC officials coordinating R&D and Innovation programmes, R&D directors of related international institutions and companies, and university rectors together in the European Parliament. Thus, we anticipate a fruitful debate and excellent networking opportunities for all those involved in the European research and development activities.

Please note that due to the European Parliament security regulations, only registered participants can attend the event. Therefore, you are kindly requested to complete the online registration form on the event website before January 20th 2009.
