– Program: this workshop will start with a presentation of the results from recent surveys performed in several European projects concerning RI needs of the STE sector. Afterwards, an open discussion about the results from the surveys will be held with the participation of people attending the workshop and representatives of R+D centres and STE industry.

Information about the WP5 workshop:
