The UAS4EUROPE network, led by EURASHE, will organise an applied research daytime conference and an evening reception in Brussels on 15 March 2017. The conference is titled ‘Universities of Applied Sciences: Maximising Success in Horizon 2020 and Beyond – Learn! Network! Lobby!’ and will be co-organised with the Bavarian Research Alliance.
The daytime conference is free of charge and aimed at applied researchers and EU (policy) officers working at European UAS. It will address the challenges UAS are facing when engaging on the European level, but also the chances international cooperation offers. Furthermore, it will provide interesting insights into the European Commission’s agenda for the coming years, practical tips on how to successfully apply for funding as well as many opportunities to exchange experiences with officials and other applicants. The programme will include keynotes by the European Commission, DG RTD and Research Executive Agency, a discussion panel and thematic workshops on applied research topics. You can find more information on the daytime conference here. Full daytime programme.
The conference is followed by an evening reception on ‘Taking Universities of Applied Sciences (UAS) to the next level: How to optimally participate in Horizon 2020 and beyond‘. The programme will include a high-level panel discussion attended by e.g. a member of the Research, Science and Innovation Commissioner Carlos Moedas’ cabinet and representatives from European UAS and research and technology organisations.
Please also note that there are only limited number of spaces available for the events and the registrations will close once the event is full, which may occur before the registration deadline (3 March 2017).
