LATEST NEWS AND DEVELOPMENTS- HORIZON 2020 – SOCIETAL CHALLENGE – NET4SOCIETY
- Regional Info Day and Proposal Check event in Warsaw, Poland: Societal Challenge 6 Brokerage Event & Info Day will be held on 30 October 2018 in Warsaw, Poland. As in the past, the event is connected to the publication of 2019 Societal Challenge 6 calls for proposals, scheduled to be launched in November 2018 with a deadline in March 2019.
The event will be comprised of a morning info-day session with presentations from the European Commission and other relevant stakeholders, followed by a flash presentation session for future coordinators and finalized with pre-arranged face-to-face meetings, during which you can meet and discuss with researchers, enterpreneurs and other stakeholders sharing a common interest in our Societal Challenge.
While registration will first open on 2 September 2018, the event website is already up and running: https://sc6-2019-brokerage.b2match.io/home. Please follow instructions closely.
- Pre-proposal check event in Warsaw, Poland: In connection with this year’s brokerage and Info Day, Net4Society will organize a “pre-proposal check” on 31 October in Warsaw—a meeting for potential coordinators of 2019 SC6 call projects who want to have their ideas commented on by SC6 evaluators. This event presents a really good opportunity for any coordinators that you know, to come to Warsaw, present their ideas in a flash presentation and/or look for potential partners in pre-arranged meetings and also have their projects “revised” by the evaluators. This approach proved to be quite successful in ICT network.
