Luxinnovation and its European R&D and innovation support team invite you on Thursday 10, October to the 2019 edition of Horizon 2020 Day in Luxembourg.

Discover funding opportunities under the last year of Horizon 2020. The new framework programme Horizon Europe will take over in 2021. Horizon 2020 is the European flagship-funding programme for research and innovation across Europe.

Learn from successful projects representatives who will share their experience with European funded projects.

Attend 2×4 parallel sessions to know more about funding opportunities in fields such as circular economy, sustainable batteries, ICT, Artificial Intelligence, digital transformation in health and care, smart mobility, and Marie-Sklodowska Curie Action.

Our experts will be happy to answer your questions during several networking times. For longer individual meetings we recommend to fix an appointment for the next weeks.

This event is open to any public and private actor willing to know more about European funding opportunities in the field of research and innovation.
