Brokerage Event, Horizon 2020 - 'Health, demographic change and wellbeing'


Connected to the Open Info Day of the European Commission (September 18th, 2015) dedicated to “Health, Demographic Change and Wellbeing” in Horizon 2020, the EU-funded projects Health-NCP-Net 2.0 and Fit for Health 2.0 are organizing a free of charge Partnering Event on September 17th, 2015 in Brussels which is meant to assist you in finding the right project partners for the upcoming 2016 Health calls. The launch of the next Work Program for “Health, Demographic Change & Wellbeing” is planned for October 2015 and the first deadlines will be in the beginning of 2016, so this would be the perfect opportunity for your institution to build your consortium.

The main part of the day is dedicated to bilateral meetings between people who are interested in the same call area. A surrounding program will provide information what makes a good consortium and give researchers and entrepreneurs a platform to present their project ideas in 5-minute presentations. The partnering event will target a wide spectrum of stakeholders from companies (including SMEs), universities, research organizations and others from Europe and beyond interested in sharing new project ideas and in finding collaboration partners for the upcoming 2016 call of SC1 in Horizon 2020.
