Cities of scientific culture
Science influences everything we do as human beings – including public policy. Let's enhance the three-way conversation between science, policymakers and society in Europe. Join the conversation in Torino, Italy, this spring.
For Europe, economic competitiveness means evolving into a knowledge-based economy incorporating science communication strategies and policies. So why not start at the local level where change can occur faster and ordinary citizens are more likely to have their say?
Europe happens, and will continue to happen, in urban environments.
