The SEWP Programme specifically targets European Countries with a lower perfomance in Research and Innovation. These countries are referred to as Widening* countries. 3 different measures (Teaming, Twinning and ERA chair) aim at connecting Widening countries with leading scientific institutions in EU Member States or Associated Countries.
The EC will soon open a call for proposals to fund a large 20M€ project on AI. It is indeed essential to mobilise the AI community in Europe, from academia to industry and users, to join forces to make our industry and citizens benefit from the excellent expertise Europe has in AI. As opposed to the international competition, European resources are currently scattered, it is therefore essential to combine efforts and develop synergies among all the existing initiatives to optimise Europe’s potential. The goal of this call is precisely to capitalise on all existing resources in AI and to provide the necessary support to boost the take up of AI by any industry, helping users to integrate AI in their products, processes and services to improve them.
The Clean Sky 2 Joint Undertaking and the call topic leaders organise an information day dedicated to the 7th call for proposals. Weiterlesen

Migration is perceived as one of the main challenges for Europe. Therefore, the European Commission has decided to strengthen research on migrants and refugees. This is reflected in the calls of the Framework Programme Horizon 2020 for the next three years.
This event will inform you about future research opportunities for migration within the European Framework Programme Horizon 2020. The focus is on collaborative projects in the area of Social Sciences and Humanities.
The information days are organised by the European Commission with support of external stakeholders.
The programme will consist of plenary sessions with key notes by high level speakers, and parallel sessions with a focus on upcoming challenges for the next work programme on Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Advanced Manufacturing and Processing, and Biotechnology (NMBP).
