2nd Workshop on Future Opportunities within Energy, Climate and Environment – Focus on Excellence and Impact in International Cooperation in Horizon 2020

25/03/2019 - 27/03/2019
Kl. 00:00

Norges forskningsråd

The workshop is jointly organized by Bavarian Research Alliance (BayFOR) and the Research Council of Norway (RCN).

Following our workshop in Munich in October last year, we will now continue in Oslo to connect stakeholders from the research, business and public sector.
Our aim is to facilitate your cooperation in international research and innovation projects in the context of the Europe 2020 strategy on smart, sustainable and inclusive growth and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The workshop will give you insight into the energy and climate field in the upcoming Horizon Europe Programme, and also in the bridging from Horizon 2020 to Horizon Europe.

How can an oil and gas company be part of a sustainable energy future? Norwegian based Equinor is working actively to reduce climate emissions, put a price on carbon, and benefit societies around the world. The company aims to be the world’s most carbon-efficient oil and gas producer, and is investing actively in renewables. You will learn more about the Equinor’s strategy and plans in the workshop.

During the workshop we will provide you with hands-on training and support, and we will have experts available to help you develop and improve your own proposal/ideas.
We will focus on building excellent partnerships, how to tell your project’s story in a convincing way and how to maximise the possible impact of your project.

We will work together with you on your chosen topic, keeping in mind how the proposal/idea can contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals.

You will also have the possibility for site visits at SINTEF, CICERO, NILU and IFE.

Contacts with RCN staff will also allow you to learn more about Norwegian funding programmes for international research and innovation projects.

This event is for you, if you

  • are interested in learning more about the world of EU research and innovation funding (Horizon 2020/Horizon Europe)
  • aim to expand your network, meet new partners, pitch your project ideas, show off your research and present your business concepts
  • need a platform to ask as many questions as possible to experts and to your peers on their current projects
  • work on proposals for funding programmes – you are welcome to bring your international partners along
  • have a great idea, but you are not sure yet how to realize it
  • enjoy communicating with people of different backgrounds and with various interests, but with the common goal of bringing successful research and innovation on the way.

The event is free of charge.

After the workshop, you may participate in a one day training course on Writing Successful Horizon 2020 proposals at RCN. This course is also free of charge.
