UKRO Annual Visit: Everything you ever wanted to know about EU research funding.

As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, we have our annual UKRO visit on Friday 18 September. This is a good opportunity to refresh your knowledge of EU funding, particularly the current €80 bn framework logoprogramme Horizon 2020 and to start thinking about the upcoming 2016 calls for proposals.  Most of the sessions will be led by our UKRO advisor, Alex Berry. We also have a session led by Jude Kirton-Darling, one of the North East MEPs. You will also be able to sign up for 15 minute clinic sessions if you have any specific EU funding queries you would like to discuss with Alex.

Details are below. Click on the links to sign up for the sessions. You won’t receive any confirmation but you can go back into the poll at any time to check it or amend your entry.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
