Special Horizon 2020 on early-stage research opportunities

A special session on ideas for future research projects is being organised, at which researchers will present their  early-stage project ideas to interested colleagues (with a view to form research project consortia).

If you're interested in joining research consortia, you're advised to attend the session, at which you will have the time to network with the researchers presenting  their early-stage ideas.
