Presentations and Speeches

In my view, there is far to little public debate on how to design and implement European Research Policy. Over the last two years I have tried to stimulate this discussion with the publication of some ten THINK Pieces.


But I also like the real debate with people interested in European Research Policy. As you can see from the list below, I actively contributed to a number of conferences, meetings and workshops.


If you think my reflections and ideas could be also a stimulating input to your event, please contact me so we could discuss the details.
