Researchers and Innovators working in organisations in Cyprus will have the opportunity to follow a series of online events on the opportunities arising from the European Union’s biggest Research and Innovation funding programme, “Horizon Europe”.
“Horizon Europe Info Days”, which are being organised by the European Commission, will begin on 28 June 2021 and last for ten days. They will cover the Programme’s six Clusters, as well as the “Research Infrastructures Programmes”, the “Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions” and the Horizontal Programme “Widening Participation and Strengthening the European Research Area (ERA)”.
