Participation of H2020 Excellent Science projects to the ICT Proposers Day 2016
The ICT Proposers day is a unique networking opportunity to build partnerships and projects targeting the new FET Open, HPC and e-infrastructure calls.
FET Funding Opportunities
New in the FET Open CSA call: the FET Innovation Launchpad
The Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Open call for Coordination and Support Actions (CSA) includes a new topic under the Horizon 2020 WP2016-17: the Innovation Launchpad. What is it for and how can you participate in this call?
Funding opportunities for HPC in Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2016-2017
The FET Proactive call on HPC aims to leverage the existing European strengths for building the next generation of extreme performance computing and taking advantage of the new opportunities created from the transition from peta to exascale computing. The ultimate goal is to achieve world-class extreme scale computing capabilities in platforms, technologies and applications.

HBP Video Selfie Campaign - Nicole Schubert
The Human Brain Project (HBP) presents its scientists and their research with a video selfie campaign
Both early-career and senior scientists were invited to present their daily work and contribution to the Human Brain Project Platforms in a one minute video. The aim of the video campaign was to facilitate engagement between members of the Consortium, learn about the work of different scientists and engineers, and to increase the visibility of individuals, in particular early-career researchers.
