This is a critically important time for European research and innovation. The new Horizon 2020 funding programme is entering its second year and has faced huge demand and expectations. In addition, the Commissioner has been charged with making recommendations on the future direction of science advice in Brussels to the Commission President before the summer. There have also been concerns with the proposed Investment Plan for Europe and its impact on European research funding. Public lecture and debate with the European Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, Carlos Moedas. This lecture was organised by the Academy of Medical Sciences, British Academy, Royal Academy of Engineering, Royal Society, and Royal Society of Edinburgh. 5:30 pm-7:15 pm on Monday 23 March 2015 at the Royal Society, London. royalsociety.org/events/2015/03/european-commissioner-moedas-visit/ Video thumbnail: © Royal Society.
