EU-BRASIL Cooperation Consultation Workshop

Monday, November 10, 2014 - Monday, November 10, 2014
Other events and announcements

The EU-BR workshop will follow the EU-Brazil Open Consultation (closing on 31 October 2014) with the aim of identifying strategic joint R&D&I areas in the next WP 2016-17 of Horizon 2020.

Two EU-Brazil Coordinated Calls have been launched in 2011 and 2013, with significant interest on both sides of the Atlantic. Results from Call 1 projects have been showcased in a variety of events, and a number of success stories have been identified. Call 2 projects have recently started after a very competitive call, and Call 3 is now open (Work Programme 2015 of Horizon 2020), with a deadline of 21 April 2015.

Building upon this success, and looking towards future topics of cooperation, a Workshop was held in Brasília last 28 July in the context of CSBC 2014 on Brazil-EU Cooperation in the area of ICT. At the event, a first set of potential topics of cooperation was identified, but further discussion is needed before establishing priorities. With that objective, the European Commission has launched an Open Consultation Survey – with the aim of identifying strategic areas for joint R&D&I in WP 2016-'17. The survey will close on 31 October 2014 (12h00 pm CET)

The EU-Brazil Cooperation Workshop will follow on 10 November 2014 in Brussels.

Venue: Brussels, DG CONNECT, Avenue de Beaulieu, 25 - Room: 0/S1

The event is free.

Registration and draft agenda will be soon available.
