FFG starts online Horizon Europe launch campaign


On 12 January 2021, the Austrian Research Promotion Agency FFG started its Horizon Europe online campaign "Join Our Community: Horizon Europe startet!". This series of 35 different sessions is the official Austrian kick-off for the new Research Framework Programme, due to the Covid-19 situation held as a series of online events between 12 January and 22 March 2021. Each week with events is dedicated to a different topic, this week it is an overview of Horizon Europe and the European Research Area.

More than 500 participants joined the first event on 12 January, where Jean-Eric Paquet, Director General of DG RTD, presented an overview of what Horizon Europe has to offer, amongst others. On 15 January, EC experts will be available for a question-and-answer session on Partnerships and Missions. The other components of the new Framework Programme, including opportunities for funding and participation, will be presented and discussed by EC representatives and experts in the course of the following weeks. The campaign will conclude with a policy event on 22 March 2021 in which Commissioner for Research and Innovation Mariya Gabriel will participate.
