In collaboration with our sister organisations in Denmark and Norway, we are proud to invite you to our upcoming symposium, Bridging European Science III between the 28th and 29th of August.
This event will host an incredible array of sparkers and interesting sessions around the topics of Space, Medicine and Sustainability. You can check the program and speakers here:
Attendees will be able to also present their research at the different poster session, promoting interaction between everyone at the event. If you are a member ACES and you are planning to attend BESIII to present your science, check out our travel grants to attend this event!

ABOUT THE BES SYMPOSIA
The event “Bridging European Science” was created as an international forum for scientific interactions between universities, companies and the public sector in the Nordic countries and Spain.
The first edition took place in Lund 2016, organized by the associations of Spanish researchers in Sweden and Denmark. The event is inspired by the Øresund Science Region (ÖSR), a cross-border initiative that aims to bring together regional authorities, businesses and universities. The lack of synergy observed between research and industry across the Swedish- Danish border triggered the ÖSR initiative, which fosters the development of the cross-border region to promote knowledge-based economic development. The second edition took place in Berlin 2018, incorporating the association of Spanish researchers in Germany as part of the organization. And now, in the third edition we have an organizing team of associations from three nordic countries, Denmark, Sweden and Norway. The cooperative spirit is characteristic of the nordic countries and necessary to solve the global challenges of today. For this reason we organize this event for the third time, with a focus in three key areas: medicine, sustainability and space. Another key element for scientific cooperation is scientific diplomacy, thus, we have a section with a round table of scientific diplomacy. In this edition, we focus this round table in scientific diplomacy in space because international collaboration is a key element of space research and research in space. Finally, in order to achieve good scientific cooperation, we need to communicate complex topics in a clear way. For that, in this event we have included a series of workshops of science communication that can complement the education of the science professionals that participate in the event.
Last but not least, a number of participants will present their research as a poster during the event and specifically during the poster session. The main goal of this event is to continue growing and establish an international network based on knowledge and excellence, by pursuing the following aims:
- Bridge european research and innovation
- Emphasize the path from basic science to technology transfer
- Promote networking, mobility and collaborations within Europe
- Highlight outstanding science developed by Spanish researchers
- Disseminate the science that will shape our close future
- Bring closer new discoverings in science and technology to the public
