Any information at this early stage as to what is coming up in Horizon 2020 is very useful and any events where you can meet with others in your field to build relationships and potential collaborations is invaluable. You can combine both of these by attending an ICT in Horizon 2020 half day event in Bristol on October 7th.
In partnership with the ICT Knowledge Transfer Network, the ICT National Contact Point and Deloitte UK, the completely free information event will provide an introduction and update on funding support for R&D in the ICT sector under Horizon 2020. You will to receive an overview of the proposed ICT Work Programme for 2014 and hear from speakers with extensive experience in EU funding participation so this looks to be a super event!
