About The Event

IGLO is an informal association of Brussels-based non-profit R&D Liaison Offices. The aim of IGLO is to facilitate and enhance the interaction, information exchange and co-operation between Members of IGLO, their national research systems and the European institutions on issues related to EU RTD, in particular, the Framework Programme, ( http://www.iglortd.org/ ).

On the first Tuesday of every month, a session of information on issues related to EU RTD, entitled IGLO Open, is organised by one of the member offices on a rotating schedule. IGLO Open meetings involve relevant speakers, especially from the European Union institutions.

TuR&Bo is a member of IGLO and on 5 February 2019 we are hosting an IGLO Open meeting dedicated to bioeconomy.
