Briefing on Horizon 2020 European Funding: information and brokerage, consortia building and proposal development for the next Horizon 2020 funding calls.

Innovate UK and the Knowledge Transfer Network are hosting the Horizon 2020 Transport event which is aimed at supporting collaboration across the UK and Europe.

We will be promoting funding opportunities available for robotics through Horizon 2020, the EU’s largest research and innovation funding programme.

Delegates can expect:

  • pointers and tips on achieving success in Horizon 2020
  • valuable insights on topics around the areas to be funded by the EU in 2019
  • an overview of the support available locally and nationally to develop applications
  • brokerage sessions throughout the day
  • consortium building and proposal development on specific call topics
