Description

Vision2020: The Horizon Network will hold its next RTO Members’ event, dedicated to university & research and technology organisation members, at University College Cork, Ireland on 22-23 May 2017.

The aim of this event is to discuss Vision 2020's activities and future developments in light of the next Work Programme 2018-2020 and the 9th Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. It will be a great opportunity for each representative to meet with other Vision2020 RTO members and to share information and best practices in order to establish potential collaborations for the next set of calls. Additionally, an EC representative will be delivering a key note address on the new priorities of the FP-9 and members will be invited to discuss the actions to undertake in the wake of the new Framework Programme.

Please note that, the venue has a capacity of 70 people, consequently the attendance will be limited to 1 representative per member institution, the second representative will be included in the waiting list and subject to availability.

Should you have any questions about the event, please contact Lisa on lisa@2020visionnetwork.eu
