30 September 2016 - 30 September 2016

For more than a decade Turkey has been associated to the European Framework Programmes for R&D, and now again in Horizon 2020. In particular, the private sector has been quite successful (nearly 40% of FP7 funding). The main aim of the “Turkey in H2020” project is to help the Turkish research community, as well as the private sector, to increase their participation in H2020. One of the activities carried out by the project are Brokerage Events where we want to bring the European and Turkish research and innovation communities together to foster the creation of new partnerships.

The event “Cities of the Future 2016” will bring together up to 300 participants from Europe and Turkey, coming from both research, industrial communities, and municipalities in the domains addressed. This will offer the unique opportunity to connect not only with Turkish and European researchers but also with highly qualified research-performing SMEs. As such, this event will be an excellent platform to expand your network and create new partnerships for the upcoming calls in Horizon 2020.

Join this event, present your project ideas and discuss them with potential partners in face-to-face meetings!

What is even better, we have funds available for European participants to cover their travel and accommodation expenses! All you need to do is provide us with your proposal idea and a short bio of yourself and we will then get in touch with you for the detailed arrangements. But don’t leave it for too late, our funds are not limitless!

Just register on our website and book your face-to-face meetings.
