CIC bioGUNE and CIC biomaGUNE, BRTA member research centres, are organising a round table on “Science and Innovation” on Wednesday 20 March with the political parties that have been represented in the Basque Parliament during the last legislature 2020-2024.

The event will take place this Wednesday, from 10:30 a.m. onwards, in the auditorium of the Zamudio/Derio Campus headquarters building of the Euskadi Technology Park (Ibaizabal Bidea, 101. Zamudio) and the people who carry out their research activity in the 17 research centres (Azterlan, AZTI, Ceit, CIC bioGUNE, CIC biomaGUNE, CIC energiGUNE, CIC nanoGUNE, Cidetec, Gaiker, Ideko, Ikerlan, Leartiker, Lortek, Neiker, Tecnalia, Tekniker and Vicomtech) that form part of the Basque Research & Technology Alliance (BRTA), as well as anyone else who would like to find out about the political parties’ plans on science and innovation in the run-up to the next elections.

The round table will be moderated by José María Mato, director general of CIC bioGUNE and CIC biomaGUNE, in a format with two turns of interventions -a first turn of five minutes and a second turn of three minutes for each of the parties-. At the end of these two turns of speeches, the moderator will ask a series of questions that will have been previously formulated in writing by the participants. The questions will be the same for the representatives of the five parties. This initiative, with the obligatory break in 2020 due to the pandemic, is now in its third edition since its launch in 2012.
