The European Commission is searching for experts from all fields to participate in shaping the agenda of Horizon 2020, the European Union's future funding programme for research and innovation. The experts of the advisory groups will provide high quality and timely advice for the preparation of the Horizon 2020 calls for project proposals.
The Commission services plan to set up a certain number of Advisory Groups, amongst others in the field of “Leadership in enabling and industrial technologies”. To reach the broadest range of individuals and actors with profiles suited to contribute to the European Union's vision and objectives for Horizon 2020, including striving for a large proportion of newcomers, and to gain consistent and consolidated advice of high quality, the Commission is calling for expressions of interest with the aim of creating lists of high level experts that will participate in each of these groups.
The deadline to express your interest is 06 March 2013 at 17.00, Brussels local time (CET). More details can be found on the Horizon 2020 website.
Manufuture 2013 conference – "Manufuture View on Horizon 2020" - Vilnius, Lithuania – 06-08 October 2013
Manufuture 2013 will serve as a forum for stakeholders from industry, universities, research institutions and government to discuss the possibilities on how to implement Horizon 2020 and respective national initiatives. The focus will be on exploring the possibilities of the Horizon 2020 programme - the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (2014–2020) - and the related initiatives of Member States. This will allow both the need of the manufacturing industry to address global challenges and regional strengths in R&D capabilities related to key enabling technologies to be reflected in these and other EU and national research and innovation support programmes for industry.
