ICT Proposers' Day 2017 will take place on 9 and 10 November in Budapest, Hungary. This networking event centres on European ICT Research & Innovation with a special focus on the Horizon 2020 Work Programme for 2018-20. An Opening Ceremony and Social Event will be organised by the Hungarian Ministry of National Development and will take place on 8 November.
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.
The European Commission, DG RTD is happy and honoured to inform you that the FIRST WIDENING DAY will be held in Brussels on Wednesday 08 November 2017 (09:30am – 17:30pm). This is the first time that all THREE WIDENING ACTIONS will meet in Brussels and we count on your presence! This dedicated day to WIDENING will gather coordinators from ERA CHAIRS (FP7 and Horizon 2020), TWINNING and TEAMING (phase 2) from all over Europe in the aim to create a WIDENING COMMUNITY.
