Science|Business is organising its 4th conference on the future of the EU framework programme Horizon 2020.
This year, 2016, marks a turning point for Horizon 2020, the world’s second largest civilian research programme. After a strong start in 2014 with a funding rise and a surge in applications, the €77 billion programme is beset with questions about its future: Will its overall, annual budget be cut in this year’s EU funding review? How can it deal with the continuing tide of grant applications? What can applicants do to increase the odds of success? At the conference, Horizon 2020 experts will deliver tips and advice to perform better.
Different stakeholders for the Horizon 2020 programme are expected to be part of this dialogue at the event. Among the guests at the conference will be Carlos Moedas, Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, Robert-Jan Smits, Director-General, DG for Research and Innovation and Jean-Claude Burgelman, Head of Unit, Science Policy and Foresight, DG RTD.
The conference programme and further information is available on the event website.
