RI-LINKS2UA Webinar Series – In-depth Horizon 2020 info for Ukrainian Researchers

The goal of the webinars is to provide Ukrainian R&I actors with in-depth information about Horizon 2020 calls and rules for participation in order to promote Horizon 2020 calls in Ukraine and encourage the participation of Ukrainian researchers in EU projects. The target audience of these webinars are Ukrainian researchers, innovation actors, SMEs and project managers. On 22 June 2016, the 1st of these information and mentoring web-sessions will offer a general introduction into Horizon 2020 tailored to Ukrainian researchers.

Since March 2015, Ukraine has been associated to Horiton 2020 giving Ukrainian researchers, businesses and innovators the opportunity to fully participate in this programme. The EU funded RI-LINKS2UA is implementing a series of webinars to encourage Ukrainian participation in international STI projects under Horizon 2020.

The presentation of RI-LINKS2UA and assessment of Ukraine’s involvement in H2020 will be updated for each webinar so as to reflect the latest developments of the project and Ukrainian participation in EU projects.

The agenda and focus of each webinar is defined taking into account the priorities identified by the JSTCC (Joint Science and Technoloy Cooperation Committee).

The trainers are experts from the consortium members (e.g. NCPs, project managers dealing with European funds, researchers experienced in project writing and implementing, H2020 evaluators etc.).

All webinars are recorded and are made available as videos on the project website. Additional supporting information (documents and links) are also downloadable from the website.
