     WELCOME TO THE PL-UK SCIENCE FORUM 2018
     #YESI

     The UK-Poland Science Forum is a joint initiative of the British Embassy
     Warsaw and the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education, organised
     in cooperation with Top 500 Innovators. It is the centrepiece of the 2018
     PL-UK Year of Entrepreneurship, Science and Innovation, and one of the
     actions agreed by Prime Ministers Theresa May and Mateusz Morawiecki
     during the latest UK-Poland Intergovernmental Consultations.

     The Forum will provide a new platform for researchers, scientists and uni-
     versities from the UK and Poland to connect with each other, learn about
     new opportunities, discuss the issues of the day with government represen-
     tatives and share experience of doing research in Poland and the UK.

     The forum will consist of two days of activities and include thematic work-
     shops and blocks dedicated, among others, to collaboration under Euro-
     pean research and innovations programmes (focusing on Framework Pro-
     grammes and on Horizon 2020 in particular), research management and ven-
     ture camps.
