Agrolink - Program H2020-lookout

The European Commission set up a program to stimulate research and innovation, called Horizon 2020 (H2020). The program comprises a nearly €80 billion funding budget. The objective is to develop breakthrough innovations to secure the global competitiveness of Europe.

A project with such bold goal and a matching budget, offers many opportunities for any researcher in de union. It is however needless to say that developing H2020 proposals and consequently set-up consortia to run research projects, will require a significant effort.

H2020-lookout: half day seminar on H2020, dedicated to the agricultural research area, with focus on the research activities of the Agrolink partners, giving insight in effort and return of participating to EU programs.
