Official NTNU Horizon Europe and Erasmus+ Launch

 

About the session:

NTNU has high ambitions for participation in the European framework programmes for Research and Innovation, and Education. The goal for participation in Horizon 2020, an income of 1 billion NOK, has been reached, and participation in Erasmus+ projects has been beyond expectations. Now it is all about preparing for the next European framework programmes Horizon Europe and Erasmus+ starting in 2021. Norway’s financial contribution to participate as an associated state is substantial, and national ambitions are high. NTNU is expected to contribute substantially. Participation in the programmes is a key priority in NTNU’s Strategy and International Action Plan, and important for the quality and relevance of NTNU’s research, innovation and education activities. In this official launch event, NTNU’s leadership will engage in a dialogue with both the leadership of the European Commission and the political leadership of Norway, as well as the Research Council of Norway and Diku about European and national research, innovation and education policies and priorities, and the interconnectivity between national and European programmes and funding.

Meet the European Commission: Horizon Europe – the political framework

 

About the session:

Horizon Europe is the largest framework programme for research and innovation (R&I) in the world. It is shaped to implement specific EU policies and strategies. Some of the main political drivers are represented by the six commission priorities for the period 2019-24, with particular reference to the Green Deal, the United Nation Sustainable Development Goals, and the covid-19 recovery plan Next Generation EU. The session will dig into the political drivers for the next Horizon Europe framework programme and the way it will contribute to the fulfilment of R&I targets for Europe.

Novelties in Horizon Europe

 

About the session:

Horizon Europe is the ninth European Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. It is said that Horizon Europe is an evolution of previous framework programmes rather that a revolution. Even so, there are innovations in Horizon Europe that one should be aware of. Most notably is the new European Innovation Council and the Missions. We can also expect other novelties, for example a mission-oriented approach running though the programme and a strong emphasis on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the EUs political flagship initiaive the Green Deal. In this session two of Norway’s top experts on European research and innovation will share their insight and maybe also provide some tips and advice about how to succeed in the new programme.
