On 8 February 2023, the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA), the European Commission's DG Climate Action and Research and Innovation are organising a half-day virtual Workshop on Innovation Fund synergies.
The focus of the workshop is to gather participants from mature R&I projects funded under EU R&I funding programmes (notably Horizon 2020) to explore funding opportunities under the EU Innovation Fund to deploy their technologies.
Please register to connect and follow the event online.
Fully virtual, selected participants will present online their ideas. The workshop will be webstreamed, with the link being made available a few days before the event and interactive participation will be encouraged using sli.do (#H2020IFSynergies).
