The Luris Grant Development team is organising 'H2020 Academy', a series of information meetings and events about Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, the largest funding programme in Europe with a budget of 70 billion euro.
"Influencing H2020 and the next framework programme" is about long-term forward looking activities to design and create future funding opportunities in EU programmes. The purpose of the meeting is not only to provide insight into the political contexts, the decision process and the timescales. But also delve a little deeper into the different channels of influence, and identifying which of those channels are most suitable. Finally, we will discuss how we can optimise our use of those channels and other activities, such as joining forces with other stakeholders, to succeed in achieving influence. The speakers will provide personal insights in terms of their own role and experience, providing examples of past activities and outcomes achieved, as well as looking forward towards to influencing the work programmes of 2018-2020 and the next framework programme (currently referred to as FP9). The timing of this meeting is ideally placed to ensure the University of Leiden is in the best position to influencing both.
By the end of the meeting you will have an understanding of what lobbying Brussels means, and what activities take place at Leiden University to achieve this. This meeting will serve to better connect all people at Leiden University who are engaged in influencing Brussels and at the same time is an invitation for all who think they have a topic that needs to be addressed at a European level to join in future activities.
