UT Austin Portugal@Horizon Europe – Speed Meetings
September 21 - 14:00 | 16:00 UTC+0
This event is exclusively for researchers from the UT Austin Portugal Strategic Research Projects 2019
One of the main goals of Horizon Europe (HE) is to improve the innovation of European companies and to facilitate the transformation of knowledge generated in Europe into competitive advantages, translated into social and economic impact. In the specific case of Portugal, there is a challenge associated with the national participation’s increase – with a focus on the business fabric – in the latest European framework programme, in order to double the participation of national companies, side by side with R&D institutions.
In order to meet this objective, the involvement of national stakeholders in the promotion of actions to increase participation in Horizon Europe is crucial. In this sense, it’s important to develop an engagement and capacity-building strategy targeting the actors involved, towards increasing the community’s awareness of HE.
Bearing this in mind, we are organising a session to present HE R&D&I funding opportunities for the UT Austin Portugal community, including concrete opportunities for cooperation with the U.S.A.
