The four research public-private partnerships launched in the framework of Horizon 2020 - Sustainable Process Industry, Green Vehicles, Factories of the Future and Energy-efficient Buildings - will be the main features during the European Commission Information Day on Tuesday 21 October 2014. The aim of the event is to give the research community an overview of ongoing activities in the PPPs under Horizon 2020, and to support the preparation of proposals for the upcoming 2015 calls.
To register for the event use the registration form on the European Commission website. But hurry as places are being allocated on a first-come first-served basis and all participants will need to register. Don’t expect to turn up on the day and get in!

A specific session dedicated to the SPIRE PPP will take place during the afternoon of 21 October in the Charlemagne building from 13.30 to 15.30 and will be followed by a brokerage and networking event from 15.30 to 17.30 during which interested stakeholders will have the opportunity to present their project ideas for the 2015 SPIRE calls and meet potential partners.
