This grant scheme financially supports the participation of local researchers from Eastern Partnership countries in a Horizon 2020 training and brokerage event in Bratislava, Slovakia on 29-30 November 2016. Networking4Innovation is organised by Danube-INCO.NET and the Enterprise Europe Network on 30 November. The training on 29 November will be conducted back-to-back with the Energy Networking4Innovation Brokerage Event (a side event to the SET Plan Conference 2016). Maximum funding per grant is 1,500 EUR.
IncoNet EaP has developed a grant scheme to financially support the participation of local researchers from Eastern Partnership countries in large-scale brokerage events and other similar activities in EU Member States or Associated Countries, which are related to Horizon2020. Such events provide an excellent arena for researchers to liaise and develop synergies, therefore the participation of researchers from the targeted countries will increase their opportunities to get involved and be taken onboard in consortia set up in EU MS/AC countries. It will also allow the researchers to make their institutions and/or their research networks better known.
This specific grant supports Eastern Partnership participation in the Energy Networking4Innovation Brokerage Event in Bratislava and in addition offers a Horizon 2020 Training, provided by IncoNet EaP partner RCISD.
