The new European framework programme supporting research and innovation (R&I), Horizon 2020, covers the 2014-2020 period.
It represents important opportunities for all European R&I stakeholders, allowing them not only to access significant funding, but also to extend their contact network internationally, to envision wider markets for their products and services, more generally to enlarge their horizons…
Similarly to what Sigma Orionis has done in the last years in relation with the previous R&I EU-funding programme (FP7), the company has been actively participating in information and training activities related to Horizon 2020.
To do so, Sigma Orionis relies in particular on the experience gained by several senior staff members in the design and management of EU-funded projects, and in the evaluation of proposals and review of projects.
Karine Valin, Executive Director of Sigma Orionis, is one of such staff members and has just chaired an “Awareness and Training Event” in Fes, Morocco, organized through the MED-Dialogue project Sigma Orionis is partner of, and aiming at increasing cooperation in ICT research between the two sides of the Mediterranean sea.
Other information and training sessions are planned in the weeks and months to come, in Europe and other regions of the world, entitled to Sigma Orionis by private and public organizations. For further information, please contact us.
