As part of our UKRO membership we have an annual visit from our European advisor. Alex Berry will visit us on Monday 6 October. We are working on the programme for the day with her and will publish more details here when we have them. There will probably be sessions on Marie Sklowdowska-Curie Actions, a session on social sciences and humanities in H2020 and a clinic session where people can sign up for a  short slot to discuss their H2020 project ideas. These will be open to all staff and will be a great opportunity to find out more about different parts of Horizon 2020 and see where your project ideas fit best. We will keep you posted!
