Horizon 2020 information meeting on Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials
On 26 November, VINNOVA and Formas invite you to a Horizon 2020 information meeting about the calls on Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials. The first deadline for proposals is expected as early as the beginning of 2016.
The information meeting is aimed at actors from universities, institutes, companies and public sector who are actively seeking funding for collaborative research and innovation projects within the fields of Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials. The upcoming work programme in the area offers great opportunities for Swedish actors in the area.
The meeting provides an opportunity to meet Dr. Manuel Gómez Herrero, Policy Officer in Charge of Raw Materials and Dr. Alison Imrie, Policy Officer and Work Programme Coordinator at DG Research & Innovation, both from the European Commission. Dr. Gómez Herrero and Dr. Imrie will give an overview of the opportunities within the upcoming Horizon 2020, SC5 call, i.e. WP2016-2017.
Project examples will share their experiences on setting up and running SC5 projects. Moreover, the meeting offers opportunities for small and medium-sized enterprises (SME:s) to discuss their project ideas with EUSME support office representatives.
You will also meet the national experts to the programme committee and the National Contact Points (NCP) for SC5. There will be opportunities for networking and more informal discussions during the coffee break.
