'The macrotheme conference on technology and science', Paris, France
2012-10-15 'The macrotheme conference on technology and science' will take place from 15 to 16 October 2012 in Paris, France.
The value of investment in basic scientific research has been increasingly recognized over the last decades. The European Union has decided to increase its budget to 3% of its GDP in order to make Europe a vibrant knowledge-based economy and boost economic growth. It is difficult to quantify the direct social and economic benefits deriving from scientific research, but the rapid emergence and growth of new products and industries due to Nobel-prize winning breakthroughs in fields such as magnetic resonance imaging, superconductivity, lasers, antibiotics and transistor action supports the idea that they do exist.
The event will address topics related to technology and science (physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, pharmaceutical), particularly the implications for investors in technology and scientific start-ups.
