Horizon 2020: Swiss National Conference
As of 1 January 2017 until 31 December 2020 Switzerland is associated to the entire Horizon 2020, and Swiss legal entities are automatically eligible for funding and may count towards the minimum number of participants required for a project. Euresearch and the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI) organise a national information event on Horizon 2020, the European Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, to inform about the changes and new opportunities offered to Swiss participants.
Keynote speakers from the Federal Department of Economic Affairs, Education and Research EAER and the European Commission as well as from industry and academia will talk about the opportunities in Horizon 2020 for researchers based in Switzerland.
After a general part in the morning, researchers will be able to take part in thematic sessions in the afternoon.
