Dear participants, Dear potential applicants to the Horizon Europe Calls,
On behalf of PA7 coordinators we are pleased to invite for the Online Info Day and Virtual Matchmaking event:
“Facilitating research and innovation cooperation in the Danube Region” within dedicated calls of the “Widening participation and spreading excellence” part of Horizon Europe
This initiative of the the EU Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR) aims to bridge potential applicants from the Danube Region in upcoming Horizon Europe “Widening” calls in order to foster participation in this programme.
At the Info day on 28 October 2021 the main conditions of the addressed Horizon Europe “Widening” calls with a special concentration on the various novelties, new possibilities and actions will be presented by a representative of the European Commission.
In addition, some of the so far successfully implemented “Widening” projects in previous EU framework programmes will be presented.
Enough time will be dedicated to Q&As, so that as many issues as possible could be clarified.
The Info day will be supplemented by the possibility of continuous (long-term) virtual matchmakings (B2B) meetings lasting until 15 March 2022 (the end of the last submission deadline of the targeted Horizon Europe “Widening” calls).
The bilateral virtual matchmaking (B2B) meetings provide prospective applicants or researchers an opportunity to meet and discuss ideas for joint projects and to build consortia.
When a match is ascertained, partners from the participating Widening countries (of the Danube Region) and Non-Widening countries (of Europe) are encouraged to have detailed conversations on the project cooperation in preparation for the Horizon Europe “Widening” proposal submission.
This initiative of the EU Danube Region targets in a first step the following Horizon Europe “Widening” calls, but could be extended to future “Widening” calls.
