Invitation to the 25th EEAC Annual Conference // 12 October 2017
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the 25th EEAC Annual Conference, entitled ‘Towards the 2030 Agenda and beyond: European cooperation within a new citizensscience- policy interface’. The conference will take place on 12 October 2017 in Maastricht, the Netherlands.
The present political and societal atmosphere and the changing interface between science, policy and society set the scene for all our work on sustainability. We therefore need renewed and shared inspiration for European cooperation that goes beyond borders, silos and institutional barriers in order to drive forward the 2030 Agenda. The 25th EEAC Annual Conference will be dedicated to these needs.
The conference will provide you with a stimulating environment for knowledge-sharing through keynote speeches by internationally recognised experts and politicians, as well as round-table interactions. These round tables will be led by prominent EEAC members, and each will address a specific policy domain related to sustainable development and/or the environment.
A range of international experts, scientists and politicians have confirmed their presence at the conference. Amongst them is First Vice-President of the European Commission Frans Timmermans. The jubilee conference will take place on the 12th of October. The jubilee conference for external invitees on Thursday 12 October is embedded in an internal programme for EEAC Network members and special invitees only.
