Emma Carey, European Advisor for the UK Research Office (UKRO) Brussels will be visiting Cambridge and giving two presentations on Monday 16 March 2015 in Mill Lane Lecture Room 1. There will be two sessions as follows:

Session 1: Horizon 2020 (9:30am - 11:30am)

 This session will cover opportunities throughout Horizon 2020, explaining the types of funding available under each of the three programmes: ‘Excellent Science’, ‘Industrial Leadership’ and ‘Societal Challenges. It will also provide some feedback on the first set of calls and lessons learned, and give some tips on putting together a proposal for European Funding.

Session 2: Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) (2pm - 4pm)

This session will look at the three main strands of funding available under the MSCA: support for Innovative Training Networks at doctoral level, Individual Fellowships for post-doc researchers and funding for international and intersectoral co-operation within the RISE scheme. It will give an overview of the funding available, as well as some advice on how to approach writing a proposal in one of these schemes.

The presentations will be of interest to anyone who intends to apply for Horizon 2020 funding, administrators, as well as those that are new to EU funding and would just like to learn the basics.
