Information session on Horizon2020 in Hannover (Germany)


Horizon2020 is the largest funding programme for research and innovation in the EU. It offers a variety of funding opportunities from fellowships for individual researchers and doctoral networks to the vast array of topics and themes for collaborative projects.  Notwithstanding specific rules and requirements for different calls within Horizon2020, there are a few cross-cutting issues relevant for almost all proposals and project.

In the information session “Horizon in a Nutshell” we will provide an overview of the main objectives and structure of the programme. Further, we will ouline funding opportunities for researchers and collaborative projects as well as practical information on identifying suitable topics, funding rules, the application process and basic tips for proposal writing. We target mainly people who are new in the field of EU-funding, specifically Horizon2020.

The presentations will be held in English.

Target audience: researchers from universities, higher education institutions, research institutes as well as interested R&D personnel from small and medium sized companies. Others interested and involved in the field of R&D funding as well as multipliers may participate as well.
