The European Commission has launched the “Call for Twinning” within the Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation strand of Horizon 2020, which aims to increase the participation rate of low performing countries through a series of initiatives. The Twinning Call will address the networking gaps and deficiencies between the research institutions of the low performing member state (EU13) and their internationally leading counterparts (EU15). The call deadline is 7 May 2015. Budget for the 2015 call will be €64M and will fund projects of up to €1M for a maximum duration of 3 years.

The Research Office and International Strategy Office will be hosting an event to present the Twinning call and proposal process.  There will also be an opportunity to discuss individual projects at the end of the session but please state this when booking a place.
