APPEC-Horizon2020_2015_resizeDates: from 29 September 2015 to 30 September 2015.
Place: Zagreb (Croatia)

APPEC invites all interested astroparticle physicists and colleagues from neighboring scientific fields to a community event to inform about the upcoming possibilities in Horizon 2020 for Research and Innovation. Presentations by experts on the various funding instruments shall demonstrate European funding opportunities ranging from individual grants up to large collaborative projects and give advice on competitive proposal writing. In dedicated sessions astroparticle physicists will have the chance to discuss ideas for collaborative projects and coordinate proposals for future calls. Of special importance is the coordination of R&D projects of academic partners in collaboration with SME as well as the support of research institutions interested in teaming and twinning actions within the Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation programme.
