The Horizon 2020 Energy Info Days, on 23 - 25 October in Brussels, presented the 2018- 2020 Horizon 2020 Energy Work Programme, with the focus on funding opportunities for energy projects in 2018.
Recordings and presentations are available on the event page.
External evaluators of project proposals are drawn from the European Commission's independent expert database. The Commission is looking to expand the database through a call for experts covering a very broad range of fields. If you fit the expert profile rather than that of an applicant, and would like to be considered as a proposal evaluator, sign up in the Participant Portal.
