Introduction - why a special session on Horizon 2020?
The 2014 Annual Work Programme of Horizon 2020 will soon be issued, and will be followed by calls for project proposals.
It is important that the official statistics research community is prepared to respond to the calls for proposals once they are issued. To facilitate this, the NTTS 2013 Scientific Committee has set up a special evening session on Horizon 2020 (session 12A).
You are strongly encouraged to seize this opportunity to attract colleagues to your future research projects!
The session will follow a "speed-dating" format, with a large number of researchers orally presenting their early-stage project ideas based on a couple of PowerPoint slides in rapid succession. At the cocktail organised outside the auditorium, the presenters would then meet up with interested colleagues to exchange ideas and contact details, with the objective to start formulating project ideas and prepare the grounds for a project consortium.
You need not feel the pressure to have a fully developed project proposal; the session is aimed at capturing early-stage ideas, which may be developed into full proposals at the time the 2014 Annual Work Programme of Horizon 2020 is issued.
All registered participants to NTTS 2013 may submit their project ideas using the below form. Even if you already have an oral or poster presentation on another topic in the conference programme, you may also present your future ideas at the special Horizon 2020 session.
Submission form - submission interface now closed
Researchers in official statistics who are interested in presenting their early-stage ideas at this session were invited to complete a form (with links between the project ideas and the Horizon 2020 headings in COM(2011) 811 final), which was used to established the list of presenters at this special session.
The deadline for submitting project ideas has now passed.
