Lyon, France – December 8-12, 2008

This event was organised by INRETS in the frame of the French EU Presidency, on 8-12 December in Lyon, France; it was strongly supported by ECTRI. Actually, ECTRI was involved in several ways: ECTRI held its Board and Assembly Meetings, during which the new Board for 2009-2011 was elected. Seven ECTRI Thematic Working Groups also met during the week, in order to produce three contributions: a matrix of competencies, a strategic research agenda and ideas for the 7th Framework Programme update (2010- 2011). See presentation: ECTRI Thematic Working Groups (500,10 Ko), made by Niels Buus Kristensen, ECTRI Board member during the Plenary Session on 11 December 2008.
