The Panel for the Future of Science and Technology (STOA) of the European Parliament in cooperation with the European Research Council (ERC) annually organizes an event that brings Members of the EU Parliament and ERC-funded grantees. “Investing in researchers, shaping Europe’s future”, the STOA conference, aims to support a dialogue between scientists and policy-makers and to jointly discuss how Europe’s future can be shaped by fundamental research on topics ranging from smart agriculture and food, to migration and demography.
This year Prof. Pokroy was invited to talk in the framework of the ERC-STOA 2019 event in a session on smart Agriculture for the Future of EU. The event was hosted by ERC president Professor Jean Pierre Bourguignon and Ms. Eva Kaili European Parliament Member – Chair Future Science & Technology. Click here for more information.
