As the Government starts to set out its vision for our relationship with the EU research community in a post-Brexit world, we turn our attention to the shorter-term and the next phase of Horizon 2020.
We are anticipating that the first work programme for Horizon 2020’s last phase (2018-2020) will be launched formally in late October 2017. This is slightly later than previous years as the process has had to feed in the outcomes of mid-term evaluation of the programme along with the report published by the independent Lamy Group (Ed – to give it it’s full title ‘High Level Group on maximising the impact of EU Research & Innovation Programmes’).
Save the date – UK Research Office Visit – 31 October 2017
To coincide with the launch of the new work programme, we will be welcoming our European Adviser Ian Devine to Manchester Met to provide an update on Horizon 2020 and what the future and FP9 might hold.
Ian will be in the region between 31 October and 2 November visiting ourselves and the Universities of Manchester and Salford, and will be based here on 31 October (Ed – there will be similar sessions on 1 and 2 November at UoS and UoM and we’re working together to give academics across the three institutions access to the most convenient session for them).
Further details will follow, so if you’re interested please hold the date in your diary and keep your eye on the Blog for further announcements .
