Destination Europe is a daylong event showcasing the vibrant and exciting research and innovation culture in Europe and the opportunities available to researchers from anywhere in the world who are interested in working in Europe. A joint initiative of the European Union and its Member States, Destination Europe 2020 will take place at the University of Washington on the eve of the 2020 annual conference of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in Seattle.


Attendees at Destination Europe will find:

  • Experts from European research organizations, funding agencies and European Commission services presenting programs, initiatives, and opportunities to develop one’s research career in Europe
  • Researchers who have had the experience of moving to Europe temporarily or permanently sharing their experience;
  • Information about the practicalities of moving to Europe (scientific visa, mobility centers, etc.);
  • An exhibition space with stands providing additional information.

Learn more about the scope of EU and US cooperation and the role of EU in science in a podcast with Jean-Eric Paquet, Director General of the European Commission’s Directorate General for Research and Innovation. This podcast was recorded at the 2019 annual meetings of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Washington, DC.
