The Shota Rustaveli National Science Foundation disseminates information regarding "Cities of the Future 2017" brokerage event in Brussels. The event will target the following Horizon 2020 calls:
“Smart, Sustainable and Resilient Cities” and “Energy Efficient Buildings”
“Circular Economy (SPIRE, Raw Materials and Water)
“Mobility for Growth,” “Automated Road Transport” and “The European Green Vehicles Initiative”
“Smart Energy Systems and Consumers”
The brokerage event will bring together up to 400 participants from Europe and Turkey, coming from both research and industrial communities, and municipalities in the domains addressed. This will give you the unique opportunity to connect not only with Turkish and European participants but also with highly qualified research-performing SMEs. Hence, this event will be an excellent platform to expand your network and create new partnerships for the upcoming calls in Horizon 2020.
During the event 4 parallel thematic workshops will be organised where participants will have the opportunity to learn more about specific calls and present their ideas.
The event will bring together more than 400 participants from Europe and Turkey, allowing them to network, exchange proposal ideas and form consortia. Your Cooperation Profile is your business card, therefore spend some minutes to insert a high quality and meaningful profile. The better your profile the more meeting requests you will receive.
If you are a researcher, academic, industry professional or policy expert coming from either the public or private sector (including SMEs) from Turkey, an EU Member State or Associated Country, we may be able to reimburse you for your travel to Brussels and your accommodation. Check our Reimbursement Rules below.
If you are interested to get reimbursed (travel and hotel) you have to provide a meaningful Cooperation Profile indicating your proposal idea in the topic areas of the event and the role you want to play, coordinator or partner. This profile is the basis of our decision to accept your attendance at the event. You also have to complete a simple presentation template based on your “ Cooperation Profile ” and submit that to us before October 10 .
Please note that the objective of the event is to establish new partnership for proposals in the upcoming H2020 calls. In order to be eligible for reimbursement you must outline a concrete proposal idea which fits with the overall aim of this call and this must of course be reflected in your Cooperation Profile. As full details of the Work Programme may only be available for a short time before the event, the final choice of presentation invitees will depend on those which are judged to have the closest ‘fit’ with the finalised topic list.
Please note that once you are approved for reimbursements you need to sent to us your invoices. You should follow the instructions on CoF 2017 Reimbursement Rules and use the CoF Reimbursement Form .
