European Research Council in Horizon Europe

 

About the session:

The European Research Council (ERC) is considered one of the big successes of Horizon 2020, and it will be continued in Horizon Europe to a large extent along the same lines as today. The ERC's mission is to encourage the highest quality research in Europe through competitive funding, and to support investigator-driven frontier research across all fields on the basis of scientific excellence. In this session one of Europe’s foremost experts on the ERC Dr. Yoram Bar Zeev from Enspire Science will share his knowledge and insight into the ERC, and NTNU professors who are either ERC panel members or ERC Grant holders will share their experience.

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions in Horizon Europe

 

About the session:

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (MSCA) support researchers at all stages of their careers, regardless of age and nationality. Researchers working across all disciplines are eligible for funding. The MSCA also support cooperation between industry and academia and innovative training to enhance employability and career development. MSCA is an important and popular programme for NTNU’s researchers. The actions will be continued in Horizon Europe, but several changes in the MSCA instruments have been proposed in Horizon Europe. In this session we will get first-hand knowledge from the National Contact Point and Programme Committee member in the Research Council of Norway about changes that we should be aware of when preparing for the new framework programme, and NTNU professors participating in MSCA under Horizon 2020 will share their experiences and insight.

Open Science in Horizon Europe

 

About the session:

With Horizon Europe comes a comprehensive set of guidelines for Open Science and a common infrastructure for research data and publications. This represents a step change in the move towards an internationally integrated system of knowledge production and dissemination that emphasizes sound scientific practice and a commitment to transparency and reproducibility in scientific endeavours. It also requires increased diligence on the part of researchers and research institutions in terms of documentation and compliance. In this session we will debate how the new funding framework will affect the scientific process, both for researchers and their teams and their home institutions.

Research Infrastructure in Horizon Europe

 

About the session:

Research Infrastructures (RIs) are crucial enablers of research and innovation, as well as education. Europe needs an effective and integrated landscape of RIs that support a continuum of needs from fundamental knowledge creation to technology deployment. The European Framework Programmes have made significant contributions towards a more efficient and effective use of national Research Infrastructures and have developed with the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) a coherent and strategy-led approach to policy making on pan-European research infrastructures. In Horizon Europe, cooperation in research infrastructure will be supported by a specific programme on Research Infrastructures under the Excellent Science pillar. In this session you will get information about the opportunities that the Research Infrastructure programme in Horizon Europe offers. The main speaker in the session is the National Contact Point for Research Infrastructures and a member of the research infrastructure programme committee in Brussels. In addition, we will hear from NTNU professors who have experience from the research infrastructure programme.
