About this event

The European Commission’s proposals for the forthcoming Horizon Europe programme represent an ambitious €100 billion research and innovation programme to tackle the most serious social, economic, climate and technological challenges facing Europe and the world. The programme will go live later in the year.

High performing communications infrastructure will be a critical requirement for all of these. In preparation for this, the Scotland 5G Centre have partnered with Scotland Europe for this information session which will highlight the key workstreams and project themes anticipated.

The session will showcase the benefits of working with the Horizon programme and offer an opportunity for a Q&A session on technical details along with more general discussions of how early ideas may evolve to become consortium and funded projects.
