The week starts with a workshop on the multi-actor approach and thematic networks, on 24 November, followed by the infoday, on the 25th and a brokerage event on the 26th. These events are open to interested stakeholders and the public at large.
The week ends with the meeting of the national contact points and of the BIOHORIZON Advisory Board, on 27 November, open to the concerned participants only.
This workshop is organised in the context of the InfoWeek on Societal Challenge 2 calls 2016, following the publication of the work programme for 2016/2017 which is expected mid-October.
The objectives of this workshop are to:
- showcase examples of multi-actor projects and thematic networks financed under Horizon 2020 to inspire applicants, foster an exchange of views on how to best implement it;
- raise awareness on most important changes under WP 2016-2017 and what our expectations are from the future projects;
- encourage a variety of actors to engage in these projects.
The workshop is aimed at potential applicants to Horizon 2020 funding for multi-actor projects such as scientists, farmer organisations, advisors organisations or other types of organisations, in particular those participating in the EIP-AGRI network.
