ICT Proposer’s Day 2017: activities
This ICT Proposers’ Day 2017 consisted in:
- information and networking sessions;
- information stands and meeting points between researchers and companies;
- informal meetings with potential partners;
- panel discussions on European research and innovation trends.
All these items in the area of ICT and emerging and future technologies. Special focus was on the topics to be supported by the Horizon 2020 program, in the period 2018-2020.
With several thousand participants and institutions represented, the event was constituted by different moments. The formal presentation of H2020 topics and brokerage meetings are examples of these different moments.
Both informal and face-to-face meetings, as well as in networking sessions, it was possible to provide institutional and project ideas presentations. Thus, the objective was to establish partnerships on concrete issues and to offer collaboration to potential proposals and projects.
The CCG has made presentations on two topics in the current program that have already resulted in interesting partnerships in these areas. In this way, the CCG elements present at the event contributed to the achievement of the institution’s objectives as an active R&D entity in the fields of the H2020 program.
This action was co-financed by the Operational Program Norte2020, and the European Union, through the European Regional Development Fund. The context of the action was “Scientific and Technological knowledge Transfer of the CCG”.
