Hyperion workshop: "Getting Ready for Horizon Europe"

This year the last calls under Horizon 2020 will be launched, after which the new Horizon Europe framework programme will start in 2021. This programme is now in full development and will be finalized in the spring of 2020 so that the first calls can be launched at the end of 2020. To prepare in time for the new programme, the research coordination department has invited dr. Sean McCarthy, authority in EU funding and policy, to give the workshop "Getting Ready for Horizon Europe". This half-day workshop has been designed to help professors and support staff to develop strategies to participate in the Horizon Europe programme.
When & where?
Due to the covid-19 pandemic we decided to postpone the Hyperion workshop to the fall (September/ October). The exact date is to be determined. 

The workshop is free of charge, but please register in advance using this link.
