Two HSE events in STI policy were featured in the May 2015 issue of the 'International Research Update' — the monthly newsletter from the European Commission providing an overview of news related to the international dimension of EU research and innovation policy and projects.
In the course of March and April, the EU Delegation to Russia participated in a series of Horizon 2020 information events, among which an information day organised by the National Research University Higher School of Economics in Moscow on 26 March, the Newsletter says. The event attracted nearly 100 representatives of Russian universities and research organisations. The programme included presentations by the EU Delegation and representatives of Russian National Contact Points on Horizon 2020.
After that, on April 8–10, the EU Delegation took part in the XVI International Academic Conference on Economic and Social Development, organised annually by HSE. The event had a very strong international component, both in terms of content and participants, the newsletter goes. Most of the agenda and speakers’ presentations addressed issues related to EU research & innovation policies and programmes and OECD cooperation activities with third countries. A full day was devoted to discussing Horizon 2020, and in particular third countries’ participation in it.
