Brussels, 15 Mar 2005

On 14 and 15 March, European Commission President Barroso met with a group of European winners of Nobel Prizes in Physiology/Medicine, Chemistry and Physics.

As the Commission renews its focus on knowledge and innovation for growth and jobs, the time is right to hear the views of a group with considerable experience of the worlds of education and science. With his Commission colleagues Janez Potočnik, Commissioner for Science and Research, and Jan Figel', Commissioner for Education, Training, Culture and Multilingualism, President Barroso discussed the current proposals on the table for the mid term review of the Lisbon Strategy, the future actions of the EU in the areas of science and education, and ways in which knowledge can best be used to foster growth and jobs.
