Welsh Government’s Horizon 2020 Annual Event


Cost: Free

The Welsh Government’s Horizon 2020 Unit would be delighted if you could join us at its fifth Annual Event which will take place on Thursday, 4 July 2019 at the Mercure Cardiff Holland House Hotel.

The event will explore how research and innovation funds in Wales, the UK and the EU can work together to boost Wales’ international competitiveness. We will also look towards the opportunities for working with international partners through the new Horizon Europe programme. 

Welsh organisations remain eligible to apply to Horizon 2020 collaborative calls until the end of 2020 and SCoRE Cymru funding is available to support your travel and proposal development to both existing and forthcoming calls.

In any scenario, the UK Government has committed to fund UK participants in Horizon 2020.
