Vision2020: The Horizon Network
FAC Associate Director, John Kehoe presented at a member’s event for Vision2020: The Horizon Network at IBM Technology Campus in Dublin last month.
Vision2020 is an innovation platform for research organisations and companies participating in the Horizon 2020 EU funding programme. John addressed the meeting sharing his insights into the experiences of SMEs taking part in the European Research process, particularly through the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) and Horizon 2020.
Members from research and technology organisations and universities discussed Vision 2020‘s activities and future developments, and exchanged information on best practices for Horizon 2020 as well as exploring potential collaborations.
As the halfway point of the Horizon 2020 programme approaches, the event focused on the need to drive innovation and review industrial engagement within the scheme.
This event also saw the public launch of Crowdhelix, a platform that matches companies and academics for collaborations on grant proposals and short projects.
