London Higher Europe Event: Information Session on 2019 European Funding – Food and Bioeconomy

London Higher Europe is a Special Interest Group of 11 institutions within London Higher, in partnership with London's European Office, which represents the Mayor in Brussels. Our aim is to broaden members' European contacts and knowledge of EU funding. This meeting will gather academics and administrators from among member institutions for a discussion with the Horizon 2020 national contact point for food Ian Holmes (Innovate UK). We will focus on the 2019 Calls, going into detail and planning future actions which could support our members to apply for funding. London Higher Europe runs thematic meetings like this at key points during the year and outputs include showcase events in Brussels, lobbying delegations, collaborative proposals and panel discussions.  For more information on the initiative, please visit: www.londonhigher.eu or contact jordan.hill@londonhigher.ac.uk 

London Higher Europe Workshop: Brexit and the implications for FP9

On the 17th April 2018, between 14:00 and 17:00, London Higher Europe will be running a workshop looking at the practical implications of Brexit on institutions wishing to apply for funding from the next European Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. The aim of this event will be to get a clear view of where the current negotiations appear to be heading and how institutions will need to adapt their strategies to take into account the UK's changed status after it's withdrawal from the European Union.  Registration is only open to members of the London Higher Europe consortium although it is possible that closer to the time we may have places available to the wider London Higher group. See www.londonhigher.eu for further details and to find out if your institution is part of the London Higher Europe Group.
