Please note: This event is not an information dissemination event, but will focus on pitching of project ideas and brokering partnerships for European Research and Innovation collaborations and networking. It’s ideal for those who have identified specific call topics or at least areas of interest, and are ready to take the next steps, discussing concrete project ideas with potential partners and going forward to a proposal submission. If you still need support with understanding Cluster 2, its Work Programme and scope of call topics, we would like to refer you in the first instance to the recording from our Horizon Europe Cluster 2 Event which took place in June 2021. All other Cluster event recordings and slides can also be found via the same link. The NCP Team and Innovate UK KTN are available to answer your questions and arrange a call separately.

Please don't hesitate and contact me if you have any questions about this event.
