FET-programme H2020 – rules and opportunies
Welcome to an information session about the Future Emerging Technologies (FET) programme within the Horizon 2020. The session will focus on upcoming FET funding opportunities, as well as providing an update on the status of the programme, and National Contact Points for the FET-programme in Sweden, Sverker Lundin (Vetenskapsrådet) and Johan Lindberg (Vinnova), will be on place and ready to answer your questions.
Time: Wed 2018-02-21 14.00 - 15.00
Location: Lindstedtsvägen 17 at D31
FET-mission is to turn Europe’s excellent science base into a competitive advantage. It supports novel and visionary thinking to open promising paths towards radically new technological possibilities. FET actions are expected to initiate radically new lines of technology through unexplored collaborations between advanced multidisciplinary science and cutting-edge engineering, while researching beyond what is known, accepted or widely adopted.
Among other, we will discuss three subthemes of FET programme :
• FET Open funds projects on new ideas for radically new future technologies at an early stage. This can involve a wide range of new technological possibilities, inspired by cutting-edge science, unconventional collaborations or new research and innovation practices.
• FET Proactive nurtures emerging themes, seeking to establish a critical mass of European researchers in a number of promising exploratory research topics, with the aim of building up and structuring new interdisciplinary research communities.
• FET Flagships are 1-billion, 10-years initiatives where hundreds of excellent European researchers unite forces to focus on solving an ambitious scientific and technological challenge.
More information about FET-programme you can find here and all the relevant Open Calls here.
The number of seats is limited. To attend the session, please register by sending your full name and affiliation to Anna Kivilehto at KTH Research Office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The session will be held in English.
