The first round of calls under the Smart, Green and Integrated Transport challenge of the new Horizon 2020 Framework Programme will be published at the end of the year. To support the preparation of proposals, the Transport Directorate of the European Commission’s Research and Innovation Directorate-General is organising an Information Day. The aim of the day is to inform potential participants in the first round of calls and to offer some unique opportunities for networking.
The morning sessions will deliver an overall presentation of the surface transport, the aviation and the cross-cutting topics of the Transport challenge Work Programme 2014-15. Information will also be given on the Evaluation Guidelines and on the new legal and financial Rules for Participation covering all aspects from the submission of a proposal to the signature of a grant agreement. Participants will also be provided with an introduction on the Participant Portal, as well as on the services offered by the National Contact Points network (NCP).
The afternoon session will be divided between two major items - Q&A sessions followed by a brokerage event.
Three technical Q&A sessions will take place in parallel on:
The participants will have the opportunity to address specific technical questions related to the Work Programme 2014-2015 to European Commission’s project officers.
A brokerage event, also organised in parallel sessions, will allow selected participants to present project ideas and partners profiles.
The morning sessions will be broadcasted in web streaming (see event’s website for more details).
