ICC at Info Day on Horizon 2020 - Food Security, Sustainable Agriculture and Forestry, Marine, Maritime and Inland Water Research and the Bioeconomy, Brussels, 17 January 2014

Roland Poms, Secretary General of ICC, will attend the Info Day on 2014 Horizon 2020 calls for proposals - Societal Challenge 2 and LEIT Biotechnology (ec.europa.eu/research/bioeconomy/news-events/news/20140117_en.htm). After ICC's recent success stories in attracting EU funding for collaborative research projects and ICC's involvement in EU's Framework Programmes (FP4-FP7) as Coordinator (ECC 2002, MoniQA), as Workpackage Leader or Partner (HEALTHGRAIN, ISEKI, CommNET, PlantLibra, Connect4Action, iFAAM, MyNewGut, MycoSpec, EMPORA) or as Member of the Advisory Board (MycoRed, DREAM, TradeIT), ICC will again facilitate and/or partner in collaborative project proposals with Horizon 2020. As a special service for ICC members, Roland Poms and the ICC Headquarters in Vienna will support members' initiatives and provide advice in partner search or direct requests to programme officers.

Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly € 80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020) - in addition to the private investment that this money will attract. It promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market.
