This international Event highlighted research topics covered within the 2017 Horizon 2020 Calls for proposals in Societal Challenge 6 "Europe in a changing world – inclusive, innovative and reflective Societies".
“Research and innovation have an important role to play in addressing the complex challenges with which the world is confronted and in strengthening Europe's role on the global scene” (Europe in a changing world – inclusive, innovative and reflective Societies Work Programme 2014-2015).
Participants had the possibility to participate in a matchmaking event according to the topics of the open 2017 calls of SC6. It gave participants the opportunity to join pre-arranged meetings with other participants in order to identify possible collaborators and to facilitate the setup of Horizon 2020 project consortia.
The matchmaking session was preceded by an info session that focused on the policy context, funding opportunities and the open call for proposals. This info session brought valuable insights for proposal preparations.
