As we head into the weekend, a quick update on a few Horizon 2020 developments.

Dates for the diary

There will be an info day for 2017 Calls under Societal Challenge 5 ‘Climate Action …’ in Brussels on 14 September 2016. Registration is due to open in July, and you will be able to register via the link here.

DG CONNECT are also planning to host an ICT Proposers’ Day (#ICTPropDay) from 26-27 September 2016 in Bratislava. More information will be available via IDEAL-IST here.

Georgia comes on board – Armenia to follow soon

Georgia has become the latest country to sign an Association Agreement with the European Commission. The Agreement, which is applied retrospectively from 1 January 2016, means that Georgian organisations can participate on an even footing with those in EU Member States and lead proposals in their own right.

Georgia joins Iceland, Norway, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Turkey, Israel, Moldova, Faroe Islands, Ukraine and Tunisia as one of fourteen fully Associated Countries (Ed – Switzerland is still partially associated, with more information available here).

For more information on international cooperation within Horizon 2020, take a look at the “Open to the World” page of the Participant Portal H2020 Manual.
