    Horizon 2020 is the research and innovation funding programme from the EU running from 2014-2020. This event will inform you about the funding schemes as well as successfully funded projects, in the areas of Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials and Advanced Manufacturing (NMP), ICT and Future & Emerging Technologies (FET).

Successful applicants will present their experience as EU-project participants and co-ordinators.

    Specific information required when submitting a strong proposal, such as the overall objectives of these programmes, evaluation criteria and partner search tools, together with the services that Euresearch offers to support your application will be included.
