Launch of the New report of the European Physical Society (EPS)

“The Importance of Physics in the Economies of Europe”

Tuesday 15 October 2019

15.00 – 18.00

Press Club Brussels Europe

The report will be presented by the President of the European Physical Society, Prof. Dr. Petra Rudolf. A press conference will be held, followed by a round table discussion and a networking cocktail.

The report was commissioned by the EPS as an independent economic analysis from the Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr) to answer two key questions: How important is physics to the economies of European countries and how worthwhile is it to maintain and increase the investment in physics research, innovation and development. The analysis uses statistics available in the public domain and it covers 31 European Countries – the 28 EU countries, plus Iceland, Norway and Switzerland, from 2011 to 2016.

This event is addressed to all the MEPs of the ITRE committee, relevant Policy Officers of the European Institutions and the members of the relevant Commissioners cabinet, members of R&D liaison offices, scientific societies and any person interested in science policy.
