The premise behind EU OPEN DOORS DAY is to show the public what exactly their tax euros are going toward. That is, the differing policy programs, non profit organizations, and scientific research being funded by the EU and its citizens. It was Gwendolyn Bailey’s (ESR 15) job to present the DEMETER research project at the Open door of the European Commission this year. The theme of the stands this year demonstrates to the citizen how EU research is present in his or her daily life. Transport–specifically green transport–has a large stake in most European citizens life. Therefore, Gwendolyn explained in a simple way the threats and possible solutions to green mobility.
Commissioner Moedas also visited the stand and congratulated Gwendolyn on winning a Marie Sklodowska Curie fellowship.
