From basic research to market uptake, Information and Communication Technologies are essential components of the innovation chain across multiple scientific disciplines and industrial sectors.
Academics and Industrial actors from multiple fields will gather in this event to get informed on how European funding can support them in:
- the implementation of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in their R&D projects
- the development of radically new ideas into novel technological possibilities in all sectors of activity, via Future and Emerging Technologies (FET)
Intersectoral experts will advise the audience on how to maximize their impact in the upcoming calls of the European HORIZON 2020 framework programme for research and innovation
The presentations will be in English.
