Dear Readers,

Horizon 2020 continues in full swing with nearly €30 billion left for the different work programmes. The European Commission has issued updated work programmes with 2019 calls and, as you will see in the news section, it has opened funding opportunities for brand new topics. You will have the opportunity to learn more about these funding opportunities during our annual information event, the H2020 Day, taking place on Thursday, 25 October 2018.

Moreover, as National Contact Point for H2020 programmes, we receive a lot of information and knowledge from the European Commission. We want to share it with you in a useful way. For that purpose, we will put together a series of thematic reports in the following weeks.

Finally, we have highlighted some key events, information days and upcoming workshops for you. Make sure to mark your calendars.

We are always pleased to help you with your H2020 project, so do not hesitate to get in touch with us should you like more information or personalised advice.
