Learning and networking


Researchers, lecturers and scientists are more dependent than ever on funding from Europe, consequently competition is increasingly cutthroat and today’s organisations at all levels need much broader, diversified skills and expertise to win bids and contracts. Roger Pitfield (Director of Horizon Europa) will introduce the participants to the Horizon 2020 and Erasmus+ programme. His coaching and training programme will support the participants in the identification of the relevant grant and developing the proposal/project to application.
