Pan European Networks: Science & Technology

27/06/13

Communication breakdown is the biggest threat to the scientific advancement of Europe. Both governments and scientists alike must engage in dialogue in order to effectively bridge the gap between funding and reality. It is widely known throughout both the academic and scientific communities of Europe that in order to do this there must be a uniform approach to dissemination; one which enables all policy makers and budget holders to acquire the necessary information needed to allocate funding. Pan European Networks: Science & Technology helps bridge the gap between the European Commission, EU funding agencies, governmental departments across Europe and the scientists and academics who are continually striving for success.

We will provide exemplars of academic research across Europe, the European Union and individual nations covering Research & Development, Health and Environment & Sustainability, as well as featuring the key policy makers who can make a direct impact on the academic and scientific community.

Europe is a world leader in many disciplines; why not make it so in all?
