Brussels, 18 Sep 2003
EU Research Commissioner Philippe Busquin and Research Director-General Achilleas Mitsos will attend a conference presenting data from the European Social Survey (ESS), in Brussels on 25 and 26 November.
The first round of ESS was launched in 2001 and was jointly funded by the European Commission under the Fifth Framework Programme, the European Science Foundation and scientific agencies from 23 European countries.
The conference will include presentations by leading social scientists who will analyse and interpret the new data. Mirroring the twin aims of the project, the conference will cover both substantive and methodological issues and will attempt to place the ESS in the context of the emerging European Research Area (ERA). Further information on the conference will be available shortly at the following web address: http://www.cordis.lu/citizens
