Hyperion Zoom session: "Getting Ready for Horizon Europe"

Horizon Europe, 9th Framework Programme for research and innovation and successor of Horizon 2020, runs from 2021 to 2027. While the legislative process, which will formally establish Horizon Europe is still ongoing, the first work programmes are being drafted. To prepare for the launch of the first calls, the Research Coordination Office has invited dr. Sean McCarthy of Hyperion, authority in EU funding and policy, for an online training course "Getting Ready for Horizon Europe". This half-day workshop has been designed to help researchers and support staff to develop strategies to participate in the Horizon Europe programme.
