Representatives of the FOREU1 and FOREU2 alliances, European Commission Officials and external stakeholders - they are all invited to attend Science with and for Society in European Universities Alliances: Cross-Alliances Forum 2023, on the 30 November and 1 December, at the Université libre de Bruxelles. The conference will serve as a platform to celebrate the successes of completed and ongoing Research and Innovation (R&I) projects funded under the Horizon 2020 SwafS programme.

Throughout the forum, participants will delve into best practices and valuable insights regarding transformational modules. Topics of discussion will encompass the development of a common R&I agenda and action plan, the successful sharing of resources and infrastructures, exploration of joint structures, enhancement of human capital within the Alliances, and strengthened collaboration with the non-academic sector. Moreover, there will be focused dialogues on mainstreaming Open Science practices and how the Alliances have effectively involved citizens and society in their activities.  

Notably, the event will facilitate dialogues between Alliances and external stakeholders, exploring diverse models and pathways to excellence within the European R&I ecosystem. Key R&I themes such as research ethics and integrity, sustainability, social responsibility, and innovative knowledge applications will be central to these discussions.  

The forum's agenda will feature engaging plenary sessions, a series of roundtables, workshops, and poster presentations, supplemented by keynote speeches and plenary presentations from distinguished European policy deciders and academic stakeholders.

For the convenience of attendees, the plenary sessions will also be available online on the CIVIS Youtube Channel.
