Building on the great success of last year’s event, ESG2012 brings together top-level researchers, science leaders, and policy makers to examine gender issues that impact on the implementation of the upcoming Horizon 2020, the European Research Area, and Innovation Union. We are very glad to announce that EGS2012 will be held at the European Parliament, Brussels. As a high-level platform dedicated to promoting research evidence and consensus-seeking dialogue involving top-level leaders in science and policy and gender research scholars and experts, the Summit is dedicated to supporting and advancing excellence and effectiveness of research and innovation at all levels.

Please note Session 10, the Café Scientifique. These Cafés will start consultative discussions with delegates on three new topics in the discourse on gender equality and quality of research and innovation, which open up new approaches for advocating change and overcoming resistance to change. These sessions have limited spaces and are on a first come first serve basis so early registration is advisable.
