As subscribers to the UK Research Office (UKRO), Andreas Kontogeorgos will be leading our UKRO annual visit on Wednesday, 8th November 2017.
This meeting has been timed to coincide with the release of the Work Programmes for 2018-2020, giving attendees opportunity to hear all the latest news with the benefit of UKRO’s detailed knowledge and insights.
The sessions for BU academics will commence at 11:30 with a discussion of the implications of Brexit and how UKRO can assist with European funding applications. After a networking lunch, there will be a review of the highlights of the new 2018-2020 Work Programmes for Horizon 2020, which have just been released. The final open session will consider Industrial Collaboration within H2020. There are also a number of 15 minute 1-2-1 sessions available with Andreas – here, you can discuss your European funding plans and ambitions with him. Please email Dianne Goodman, to book these separately to the main event.
Bookings for this event are now open to BU Staff and, so that catering can be arranged, confirm attendance by Friday, 3rd November.
All BU staff can access the UKRO site. If not registered, why not sign up now to ensure that you get the latest news delivered to your own inbox?
If you cannot make this date or cannot wait, there is a short briefing on the 2018-2020 Horizon 2020 Programme on Thursday, 2nd November. BU staff can, of course, attend both events.
BU staff considering applying for any of these calls and other international funding, should contact Emily Cieciura, RKEO’s Research Facilitator: International Funding, for further information and support.
