The Square, Brussels 12th November 2009

Would you, your job role and your organisation benefit from:

* NETWORKING with leading academic experts and industry stakeholders from all across Europe? * DEBATING and making key policy aware of what needs to be done to improve the work that you are doing? * ASSISTING in outlining a collaborative approach to European science and technology frameworks? * LEARNING from world class speakers and some of Europe's leading organisations on new initiatives and developments?

Register your place at SciTech Europe 2009: Innovation Across Europe <> , the event that will provide you with the fantastic opportunity to forge new networks, and create new initiatives to benefit science and technology strategies, knowledge and prosperity across Europe.

Previous national policies have failed to create the environment for progressive science and innovation. However, the economic downturn has delivered a unique opportunity for the European states to deliver a cohesive approach to science and technology and drive solutions forward.

The future points to knowledge transfers, science networks and developing bridges between industry, academia and public sector policy. Collaboration across the continent and diversification of research can enable an integrated European research base that leads the world in innovation and success.

At SciTech Europe 2009: Innovation Across Europe <> you will have the chance to hear from some of the world's leading experts and most esteemed speakers involved creating the policies and initiatives that will drive this important issue forward:
