In preparation for the launch of the new EU research and innovation programme, Horizon 2020, there are a number of information days and partner brokerage events coming up in the fields of key enabling technologies, energy and under Societal Challenge 5: Climate Action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials.
Details are below. We will continue to add details of future events of potential interest to Northumbria researchers as we receive them.
EU Brokerage Event on Key Enabling Technologies in Horizon 2020, 29 November 2013, Strasbourg
The EU Brokerage Event on Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) in Horizon 2020 will focus on:
- Advanced materials
- Advanced Manufacturing and Processing
- Energy efficiency in Buildings
- Factories of the Future
- Sustainable process industries
Participants will have the opportunity to present their own project concepts and to meet representatives from companies/SMEs, universities and research organisations in order to exchange ideas during pre-arranged meetings. In your profile you can state what kind of technology/product/expertise you are offering, what kind of cooperation you are looking for and which ideas you would like to discuss with potential collaboration partners.
The aim is to pave the way for future co-operations and European projects including Horizon 2020 call topics for 2014 and 2015. More information and registration details are available from the workshop website.
Horizon 2020 Energy Information Day for 2014 and 2015 calls, 5 December 2013, Brussels.
This event will give essential information on the calls for proposals which will be open in 2014 and 2015. These calls are expected to cover Energy Efficiency, Competitive Low Carbon Energy and Smart Cities and Communities. Activities extend from research to market including activities build on the experience of the previous Intelligent Energy Europe Programme in facilitating market uptake of energy technologies and services, fostering of social innovation and accelerating the cost effective implementation of the Union’s energy policies.
It will be an excellent networking opportunity for potential participants as well as a chance to understand the new rules for participation under Horizon 2020.
The deadline for registration is 28 November 2013. Please note that this event is expected to be heavily over-subscribed. You can register here. https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/fmi/scic/ENERINFO13/start.php
