The first edition of Bridging European Science was an event co-organized by the Society of Spanish researchers in Sweden and Denmark. The aim of this event was to boost the visibility of the Scandinavian science ecosystem exemplified by the Öresund bridge. Key actors in the Öresund region talked in this unprecedented event. Furthermore, the event represented a unique opportunity to promote multi-lateral collaborations between different countries and networking among the different participants. Participants had a snapshot of the scientific strengths of both countries, and of Spain as key science diplomacy ally in the region.
