An EU/US research and education workshop will be held in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, on 17 and 18 November.

Devoted to the internationalisation of research and graduate studies, the workshop will provide a forum for research leaders and policy makers at universities and research institutes, as well as scientists with experience of research abroad, to discuss issues related to researcher mobility and transatlantic collaboration.

Key questions to be addressed include:
- How can the development of transatlantic degrees be stimulated to attract more talented young people into science careers?
- What innovative curricula are needed to prepare the next generation of scientists and engineers to engage in global research and development (R&D) careers?
- What scientist mobility schemes can best contribute to the building of lasting transatlantic networks of excellence?
- How can the transatlantic mobility of scientists best contribute to innovation in a global context?

The workshop will take place under the auspices of the French Presidency of the European Union, and is co-organised by the Delegation of the European Commission, the French Embassy to the United States, the Georgia Institute of Technology and the National Science Foundation.For further information, please visit:
