Join in this webinar to discuss strategies and to gain advice on how cities can develop proposals for Horizon 2020 bids.
Horizon 2020 is the largest European Union Research and Innovation programme, with nearly €80 billion of funding available over seven years (2014 to 2020). This high impact investment in research is multiplied with private sector co-contribution.
Horizon 2020 aims for a major increase in breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts through taking "great ideas from the lab to the market". Seen as a means to drive economic growth and create jobs, Horizon 2020 has the political backing of Europe’s leaders and the Members of the European Parliament.
This webinar is open to all - cities, private sector, academia and civil society - and draws on the expertise and experience of UN Global Compact - Cities Programme partners including RMIT Europe.
It offers practical advice and insight into developing bids to Horizon 2020, how to develop a competitive bid and the types of projects that are eligible. It also demonstrates the link between Horizon 2020 and other European programs such as FP7, URBACT, INTERREG and CIVITAS and provides example case studies of European urban regeneration case studies that have been supported by these types of programs.
