Open Info Day - Horizon 2020 "Health, demographic change and wellbeing"


Charlemagne Building, 170, Rue de la Loi, 1040 Brussels

The info day will take place in Brussels, 18 September 2015.

Horizon 2020 (2014-2020), the EU funding programme for research and innovation, puts emphasis on tackling societal challenges, including Societal Challenge 1 (SC1) related to Health Demographic Change and Wellbeing.

Having at its core the principle of 'better health for all', SC1 focuses on personalised health and care. It has an overall budget of €7.4 billion for the programme duration.

This Info Day will precede the adoption of the Work Programme 2016-2017 (SC1) and will:

  • give you essential information on how to develop a good project proposal and take you through the application process, step by step
  • help you find project partners (a brokerage event will be included)
  • help you get answers to your questions (which you will be able to send in advance via the registration form)
  • help you exchange practices with the participants who have already received funding under SC1 H2020 projects
  • help you find new business opportunities


A draft agenda can be found here.
