Brought to you by KTN, the UK National Contact Points (NCPs), SusChem UK and Enterprise Europe Network (EEN), this event focuses on forthcoming 2017 H2020 call topics in 'SPIRE, FOF and LCE' and will provide you with the opportunity to:
- Identify and link with new partners across Europe
- Join consortia forming around forthcoming 2017 call topics
- Discuss and refine your projects ideas with potential partners
- Gather information on forthcoming 2017 call topics
- Take advantage of the NCP, KTN and EEN support available on the day
This event is designed to facilitate the beginning of a real proposal submission activity that you might be willing to develop further with other delegates attending the event. All of the call topics require collaboration between a minimum of three legal entities from different EU Member States or Associated Countries so we aim to introduce you to some potential partners.
Detailed information on forthcoming 2017 call topics in SPIRE, FOF and LCE will be provided giving you the basis for subsequent in-depth discussions of proposal ideas in the proposal workshop session. During the proposal workshop session you have the opportunity to discuss and develop project ideas, objectives, impact and consortium composition with potential partners.
This event is an ideal starting point to build consortia and turn ideas into proposals for submission for the 2017 call topics.

Preliminary Programme Agenda
o 9:30 Registration opens for a prompt 10:00am start of the event.
o The UK National Contact Points for SPIRE, FoF (Craig Sharp) and LCE (Helen Fairclough) will lead through the call topics covered by the event and answer any questions you may have in relation to these call topics.
o An evaluator’s view will provide you with guidance on dos and dont's for proposal preparation.
o Flash delegate introduction & flash presentation of project ideas
o Proposal Workshop Session (in groups*): Brainstorming activities between potential partners on proposal ideas for the forthcoming calls topics covered by the event. At session end each group is invited to present and discuss progress made.
o Opportunity for informal networking during coffee and lunch breaks staggered throughout the day
o Close at 16:30.
* You will be assigned a working group based on the information you provide us with during registration. We endeavour to match you with other EU partners with similar interests in order to get the most value from the collaboration. The working groups are potentially the starting point to a consortium - a REAL consortium. You may swap working groups if you realise that your expertise is more in line with another group/call topic.
The detailed programme agenda will be made available in due course.
