As usual, RDS will host an annual UK Research Office visit to BU in 2020.
This year’s event has been scheduled for November 18 and is organised in a form of a remote zoom meeting. Please make a note in your diaries – all academic staff interested in EU funding, the new Horizon Europe framework programme and future implications of Brexit are invited to attend the event.
The event will be hosted and run by our UKRO European Advisor Ms Malgorzata Czerwiec from Brussels.
At this point, we have a draft agenda and some input from academics before finalising the agenda, as a minimum to register your interest to attend particular session by 6th November 2020, will be appreciated.
The link to the zoom meeting will be provided after the registration is closed; some of agenda items may be changed or removed depending on your feedback.
