Daytime Event

Are you interested in learning more about the European funding opportunities especially tailored to the needs of universities of applied sciences (UAS)? Interested in meeting colleagues from other UAS in Europe? We are happy to invite you to the UAS4EUROPE conference "Universities of Applied Sciences: Maximising Success in Horizon 2020 and beyond Learn! Network! Lobby!"

Representation of the State of Hessen to the European Union
Rue Montoyer 21, 1000 Brussels

15 March 2017
09h00 – 17h00

15 March 2017 - 15 March 2017

The conference will be organised by the European network UAS4EUROPE in cooperation with the Bavarian Research Alliance and the Representation of the State of Hessen to the European Union. It will address the challenges UAS are facing when engaging on the European level, but also the chances international cooperation offers.

Furthermore, it will provide interesting insights into the European Commission’s agenda for the coming years, practical tips on how to successfully apply for funding as well as many opportunities to exchange experiences with officials and other applicants. To facilitate networking and allow a more in-depth exchange, the afternoon session will consist of parallel workshops on:

• Health and Wellbeing
• Environment, Food and Agriculture
• Living and Working in the 21st Century
• Energy and Climate Change
• Enabling and Industrial Technologies, Digitalisation
• Arts and Design

The conference is intended primarily for researchers and EU (policy) officers working at European UAS.
