IMPACT SC5: Bridging land, food, energy and water for increased resource sufficiency – the impact of European Research Programmes

Webinar Topic

An interactive workshop comparing the approaches of SC2 and SC5 approaches and their impacts on future R and D strategies and EU policy goals. In this context, we will discuss how stronger interlinkages between programmes could help to increase efficiency, reduce redundancies and build synergies in research and its applications while also improving governance across sectors.
