about the cluster sessions


About the parallel cluster sessions

In Horizon Europe six broad thematic clusters have been defined, adressing important scientific and societal areas where there is a need for research-based solutions and break-through innnovation. The clusters cover a range of areas and topics, each with their own set of logics and political drivers.

To succeed with proposals answering to calls from the clusters, it is imperative to understand what is behind the calls, to know about the political drivers, to know why areas and topics have been prioritsed, and to know what is expected from projects.

In the parallel cluster sessions, we will hear from the Norwegian National Contact Points and Programme committee members for the cluster about exactly that; the political drivers, the expected impacts, as well as the instrument and funding schemes. They are joined by NTNU professors already participating in funded projects in the clusters’ areas in Horizon 2020, who will share experience and give their best tips and recommendations.
