Sustainable Neighbourhood – from Lisbon to Leipzig through Research (L2L)

„A conference on research for sustainable development in Europe”

Leipzig, 8-10 May 2007

The aim of this conference is to position sustainability research as an engine for European competitiveness within the Lisbon Agenda.

It is a cooperative event between policy and scientific communities, which seeks to provide a forum to debate current research in this field, the interaction between policy, economic and research communities, as well as future research priorities.

The conference will represent a highlight in the German EU Presidency. The Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, Dr. Angela Merkel, is invited as patron and the event will be hosted by Dr. Annette Schavan, the Federal Minister of Education and Research. The European Commission will be represented by Dr. Janez Potočnik, Commissioner for Science and Research.

The conference is expected to attract approx. 500 international participants, including scientists and researchers, funding institutions, political decision makers, representatives of industry, as well as press and media.

We invite proposals for oral presentations and posters for all areas. An international Scientific Committee will SELECT the final list of speakers and poster presenters on the basis of submitted abstracts. Posters will be presented in special sessions to participants, policy-makers, journalists and the interested [public] with room for discussions.

Deadline for submitting abstracts: 22 December 2006
