Event Description

WHEN? 26-27 February & 28-29 April


The EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation – HORIZON 2020 – came into force in 1 January 2014 and its first calls for proposals are already published since 11 December 2013. Just like with every newly established Framework Programme, the financial rules and regulations governing Horizon 2020 have changed a lot!

Compared to the previous Seventh Research Framework Programme (FP7), Horizon 2020 is expected to revolutionise Europe by cutting the red tape and, also, thanks to its simplified rules and structure.

Nevertheless, the key question is:
What do you know about the new EU funding programme for Research and Innovation?

Now that new 2015’s calls for proposals are published, many doors are still open for EU and non-EU universities, research institutes and industries (especially Small and Medium-sized Enterprises, as well as large companies) to tap the EU funding pots… in many areas, sectors and sub-sectors!

Your major benefit of this 2-day intensive training? The answer is simple…
An opportunity to assimilate every crucial information about Horizon 2020, as well as essential practical tips on how to prepare an excellent Horizon 2020 proposal based on lessons real-life examples, lessons learnt from Octopux and interactive hands-on-approach exercises.

Tired of attending “too general” workshops?
Then this is the right one, duly updated and you won’t regret it!

Bring your project ideas and discuss them with our experts during the training!
