Horizon Europe info day @UiB
This event was organized in January 2022 to learn more about EU's funding for research and innovation. Horizon Europe provides opportunities for researchers in all fields and at all career stages.
We invited all researchers at UiB to participate in this event, to receive information and get the opportunity to ask questions about the funding instruments and processes of Horizon Europe.
Due to the current covid infection control measures, this was a digital event, broadcast from the University Aula.
Horizon Europe supports a wide range of research and innovation activities, including basic and applied research, innovation projects, and networking activities, and provides funding and opportunities for researchers in all fields and at all career stages.
