Horizon 202

Truus Ophuysen, Senior Advisor ELIA

Is your institution preparing a HORIZON 2020 project application? Have you earlier submitted a 7th Framework research proposal, which was not selected?

This workshop will:

- Provide the latest information and deadlines (in 2014 and 2015);

- Discuss in detail the Priority ‘ Inclusive, innovative and reflective societies’ in which there is a section on ‘Cultural Heritage and European Identities’. See also the Work Programme 2014-2015;
- Introduce  other HORIZON priorities and programmes such as the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions under the ’Excellent Science Pillar’ pillar of Horizon 2020 with the objective to support the career development and training of researchers with a focus on innovation skills and ‘Future and Emerging Technologies’;

- Provide guidance on preparing an application, making use of the ‘Logical Framework Matrix’ summarising key elements of a project plan.

The new Research & Innovation Programme HORIZON 2020 covers activities from research to market with a new focus on innovation-related activities, such as piloting, demonstration, test-beds, and support for public procurement and market uptake. Funding in HORIZON 2020 focuses on a large number of  challenges, among them : ‘Health, demographic change and wellbeing’, ‘Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials’ and ‘Europe in a changing world - inclusive, innovative and reflective societies’.
