Workshop on impact in Horizon 2020 Food/Bioeconomy proposals

Do you want to learn more about Impact and how to succeed with your Horizon 2020 proposal?

During this workshop we will focus on Societal Challenge 2 (SC2), Horizon 2020: Food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, marine and maritime and inland water research and the bioeconomy. This is a broad and multi-disciplinary societal challenge which also covers research within the socio-economic sciences and humanities. Have a look at the SC2 Work Programme 2016-2017 to get an idea of the scope.

The aim of the workshop is to give the participants an increased knowledge about Impact and thereby enabling them to write a better Horizon 2020 application.

The workshop is open for researchers interested in applying within SC2 as a coordinator or partner.

Take the opportunity to come and listen to Dan Andrée from the Vinnova office in Brussels with extensive expertise in EU framework programmes, EU policy, evaluation of proposals, strategic issues. You will also have the opportunity to listed and ask questions to Vilis Brukas from SLU, a successful applicant and coordinator of a H2020 SC2 project.

In the afternoon there will be interactive sessions (workshops) with group discussions on impact and calls in the upcoming SC2 Work Programme 2018-2020. The session will start off with a presentation on how you can do your own, Personal Impact Plan by Susanna Pehrson, KTH Research Office.

You will also have the possibility to meet Britta Fängström, Vinnova, National Contact Point for SC2 and Johanna Dernfalk, Formas, expert in the SC2 Program Committee.
