4th BioHorizon training, 6th Bio-NCP meeting and 4th BioHorizon advisory board meeting

BioHorizon invites all officially nominated Bio-NCPs to participate in an interactive training that will be held in Brussels on the 22nd of November 2018. The training will be attached to the SC2 NCP meeting organised by the European Commission that will take place on the 23rd of November.

The focus for the training session is 'The EIC instruments for innovation - Technicalities and success cases for a better assistance in the Bioeconomy sector'.

It aims at guiding the NCPs on the EIC pilot in Horizon 2020, providing an overview on its instruments (FET Open, SME Instrument, Fast Track to Innovation, Prize) and success cases in the Bioeconomy context. The training will facilitate a view exchange among the NCPs and the EIC experts on how to better target, inform and support European actors in the bioeconomy field interested in the EIC instruments.
