Horizon Europe - ERA 2024 Brokerage Event

NCP_WIDERA.NET, the network of National Contact Points for Widening Participation and Strengthening the European Research Area (WIDERA), cordially invites you to the ERA Knowledge Day and Brokerage Event for the ERA Call 2024.

The ERA 2024 Knowledge Day and Brokerage Event will be held in Brussels on November 9, 2023.

The event is focused on the ERA 2024 call topics specified in the Horizon Europe WIDERA Work Programme for 2023-2024.

In the first part of the event, participants will gain insights into the new ERA calls and topics for 2024, as outlined in the WIDERA Work Programme 2023-2024 (Widening Participation and Strengthening the European Research Area). These presentations will be conducted by European Commission officers.

Additionally, an expert from the European Research Executive Agency will explain the project proposal evaluation process and share insights from the previous evaluation cycle.

Towards the end of the plenary session, an ERA project coordinator will offer tips and tricks for proposal preparation.

The second part of the event will provide an opportunity for participants to engage in matchmaking with potential ERA Call 2024 participants and stakeholders through pre-arranged bilateral meetings. This aims to identify possible collaborations and streamline the establishment of Horizon Europe ERA project consortia.

Participants will create profiles, including search terms based on the ERA call titles of 2024 (please refer to the ERA call topics here).

Participation in this event is free of charge, and registration is mandatory.

Please be informed that during registration process registrations for both sessions (Plenary and Bilateral matchmaking session) will be accepted first.
