CASCADE findings presented in Brussels

The major findings from the CASCADE project were presented at an open briefing event at the UK Research Office in Brussels. The event, held on 9th March, was attended by over 25 representatives from European and South Asian government agencies, as well as fundings bodies and other research groups.

The event was held to raise awareness about the project and the opportunities for research and innovation collaboration between the EU and South Asia.

The agenda focused on messages for the region – our specific experiences and feedback. These included:
Regional priorities for EU-South Asia cooperation to address societal challenges
South Asian national and regional stakeholders related to societal challenges
Engaging South Asian partners in Horizon 2020 - Policy relevant results

The session was facilitated by the Lead Investigator, Professor Dilanthi Amaratunga from the University of Huddersfield in UK, her colleague, Professor Richard Haigh, also from the University of Huddersfield who led the development of the regional paper, and Dr Champika Liyanage, from the University of Central Lancashire in the UK, who was responsible for coordinating preperation of the seven national position papers in South Asia.

A copy of the presentation materials made available on the day can be download from the CASCADE media centre.
