On 4 July 2019, the European Commission will host an Info Day in Brussels on the upcoming calls in Societal Challenge 2 (SC2): “Food Security, Sustainable Agriculture and Forestry, Marine, Maritime and Inland Water Research and the Bioeconomy”.
The SC2 Work Programme deals with some of the key challenges our planet is facing: adapting to and mitigating climate change, ensuring food security, protecting natural resources, and promoting alternatives to fossil-based economies. The proposed solutions are expected to deliver significant economic, environmental and social benefits. For most activities, a multi-player approach is crucial: various partners including end-users need to be involved during the entire project.
The Info Day is a great opportunity to gain detailed insight into the SC2 Work Programme for 2020, which includes more than 40 topics with a total budget of approx. €500 million and is structured around 4 calls: Sustainable Food Security, Rural Renaissance, Blue Growth and a new call, which makes a bridge to the next European Framework Programme, “Horizon Europe”. Sessions providing guidance on successful proposal preparation and Q&A are part of the agenda. Detailed information on individual topics will be presented and discussed in parallel sessions, with a focus on sustainable farming and agricultural value chains, blue planet, food systems and the bioeconomy.
Do not miss this opportunity to inform yourself about the last Horizon 2020 calls for SC2, to develop your project ideas and to connect with potential project partners! Have a look at the draft agenda and register for the Info Day (deadline: 28.06.2019).
All sessions will be webstreamed and presentations will be available online after the event.
