Register now for the first SusChem Horizon 2020 Brokerage Event

Registration is now open for the SusChem "Pre-Brokerage" Event for Horizon 2020 on 23 October. With the new European framework programme for Research and Innovation commencing 1 January 2014 it is time to start making your plans to get involved. And, as ever, SusChem will be taking a leading role in enabling its stakeholders to participate fully in the initiative’s ambitious collaborative research programme.

To help SusChem stakeholders to prepare for forthcoming Horizon 2020 developments and future programme calls SusChem is organising a "Pre-Brokerage" Event on 23 October at the Crowne Plaza Le Palace Hotel, Rue Gineste 3 in Brussels.

This is the perfect occasion to start your Horizon 2020 preparations and interact with future research partners! Horizon 2020 starts in 2014 and will cover the next seven years of EU research and innovation funding.

Work programmes and priorities
At the event, participants will learn about the latest information on the 2014-2015 work programmes published by the EU for Horizon 2020. They will also learn how SusChem priorities relate to the Work Programmes in our strategic areas such as:

  • Resource Efficiency
  • Water
  • Raw Materials
  • Industrial Biotechnology
  • Materials Technologies

Last but not least, delegates will have the opportunity to engage in on-site brokerage activities with other participants facilitated by our EU funding experts and Cefic innovation managers.

Space for the event on 23 October is limited, so please secure your place(s) and register today!

As a recognised ETP 2020 one of SusChem’s key activities is to encourage industry participation in Horizon 2020, help widen participation and build capabilities within Member States through cooperation with networks and partnerships.

SusChem has recently produced a video describing its role as an ETP 2020.

The 23 October event will mark the start of SusChem’s engagement in the implementation of Horizon 2020.
