Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation: Horizon 2020 Information Day

The Hungarian National Research, Development and Innovation Office (NRDI Office) organizes an English-language information day on the Horizon 2020 call for "Spreading excellence and widening participation" with the support of the European Commission.

The so-called "widening actions" within the Horizon 2020 framework are for Hungary of particular importance because with the Twinning, Teaming and ERA Chairs tenders the European Commission intends to contribute to increasing the performance of KFIs in the EU-13 countries.

On the information day, participants will receive detailed information from the European Commission representative on the calls, the application process and the information needed for a successful application.
