Get ready for SusChem Brokerage event 2011!

SusChem is committed to helping you succeed in participating in EU Research and Innovation projects. With this in mind SusChem is organising its Annual Brokerage Event on September 14 2011 in Brussels. The event will give you the opportunity to present your project ideas and engage with possible collaborations in consortia.

The EU Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7) is a key tool to enhance European research and innovation. The 2012 work programme and calls for proposals will be officially published on July 20 with Commissioner Máire Geoghegan-Quinn announcing the details at a press conference at midday on 19 July.

The July call for FP7 will be the largest R&I funding exercise launched by the Commission with calls for proposals to fund European research and innovation, totalling around € 7 billion. The Commissioner plans to boost innovation through research with the announcement of the first calls for proposals since the adoption of the Innovation Union flagship and will give details of the main fields of research and innovation to be covered. The main focus of these work programmes is the integration of research and innovation. Particular emphasis has been placed on SMEs.

In it to win it
SusChem's Annual Brokerage Event will focus on this call and will be held on Monday, September 14 between 10:00 and 16:00 at the Hotel Silken Berlaymont, 11-19, Boulevard Charlemagne, 1000 Brussels.
