Please note: This event is not an information dissemination event, but will focus on pitching of project ideas and brokering partnerships for European Research and Innovation collaborations and networking. It’s focused at applicants from the UK, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, The Netherlands, and the Nordic countries who have identified specific call topics or at least areas of interest, and are ready to take the next steps, discussing concrete project ideas with potential partners and going forward to a proposal submission. If you still need support with understanding the Clusters, Work Programmes and scope of call topics, we would like to refer you in the first instance to the recordings from our previous Horizon Europe Cluster Events series. The NCP Team and KTN are available to answer your questions and arrange a call separately.

Who can attend?

The event is specifically  aimed at applicants from the UK, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, The Netherlands, and the Nordic countries and is suitable for anyone with an interest in collaborating in European Research and Innovation projects and who is looking to submit a proposal idea or join a consortium for one of the forthcoming 2021/2022 Horizon Europe Call topics. Delegates from other European Member States are also welcome.

Why should I attend?

This Horizon Europe Clean Energy Webinar will help you find partners from the UK, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, The Netherlands, and the Nordic countries to form international collaborations and strategic partnerships. The key focus of the events will be to provide hands-on advice to give you the final boost and get you ready for submission into the forthcoming 2021/2022 Horizon Europe calls. There will be the opportunity to present a pitch about your project idea or your capability offering, and you’ll be able to talk to pitch presenters and other delegates in small groups and / or in 1-1 meetings. The UK and European NCP Teams and KTN European Programmes Team will also be available for 1-1 meetings to answer any specific or more confidential questions. Make the most of the pitching and 1-1 meeting opportunities and indicate on your registration form whether you wanted to take advantage of these. (Pitches are subject to space availability and pitches of project ideas in particular will be prioritised. We will contact you to confirm your place post registration.)

Disclaimer

In the case that we exceed capacity for these events, we will prioritise registrants that are working on or planning to work on a Horizon Europe proposal submission, and we reserve the right to limit the numbers of registrants coming from the same organisation.
