bridges vol. 36, December 2012 / Noteworthy Information
On December 6 and 7, 2012, the second “Destination Europe” conference took place, this time on the West Coast in San Francisco, after its successful kickoff in January of this year in Boston.
The goal of ”Destination Europe” is to provide a forum for leading European research organizations, funders, and industry to present the opportunities they offer to researchers and innovators from anywhere in the world. The conference aims to showcase Europe's vibrant and exciting research and innovation culture. “Destination Europe” events generally enable participants to learn about opportunities, ask questions, network, and discuss with people who have chosen to work in Europe. It is a joint initiative of the European Union and its Member States.
The two-day conference in San Francisco was well attended, attracting some 200 researchers and scientists. The next conference is scheduled for the first half of 2013 and will most likely be held again on the East Coast.
