The 2023 INESC Brussels HUB Winter Meeting took place over the past two days, 30 and 31 January 2023, at Instituto Superior Técnico.

Co-organized with Science Business (a network that strives to bridge industry, research and policy nationally and at the EU level), the 2023 HUB Winter Meeting covered a wide range of funding and policy touchstones vital for researchers from the five INESC institutions: from the opportunities brought by the Digital Europe Programme to best practices for success in Horizon Europe.

Simon Pickard, Science Business Network Director, was present at the meeting and spoke on the plethora of services and opportunities from this network available to INESC researchers, and what a closer relationship with Science Business might mean for our community.

The biannual HUB meetings are also an invaluable chance for its Management Committee — including its Directors and Policy and Operations Board members — to meet and discuss the goings-on and future of the HUB’s vital work in Brussels, positioning INESC as a European reference through the societal and economic impact its research and innovation work entails.

A detailed programme for this year’s Winter meeting is available at the INESC Brussels Hub website.
