Info Day - FP7 ERA Chairs Pilot Call: Italian Convergence Regions in the Framework for R&I 2014-2020

8 April 2013, Catania, Italy

The Commission launched on 18 December 2012 the ERA Chairs pilot call under FP7. This action will support projects carried out by individual research entities established in the eligible regions (Convergence and Outermost regions)to introduce measures and activities to facilitate the structural change and put in place the conditions needed to develop excellent research. This Information Day aims at providing comprehensive information on the ERA Chairs pilot call as well as on the opportunities for Convergence Regions in Horizon 2020.
The Information Day will also look at the Smart specialization strategy as a key instrument to foster synergies between research organisations and national/regional strategies for R&I. Participants will have the opportunity to take stock and exchange ideas/views on what can be done to develop excellent research in the R&I organisations of Italian Convergence regions.
