STRENGTHENING INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATIONS WITHIN THE HORIZON FRAMEWORK

The next WAITRO online Capacity Development Workshop takes place on October 7th-9th

WAITRO will host two online Capacity Development Workshops on strengthening international collaborations within the HORIZON framework for Researchers, Research Managers and Research Support Services at WAITRO member organizations. There will be one workshop for beginners on ‘Introduction to international collaborations and Horizon Europe’ and one for advanced and experienced proposal writers on ‘Advanced Proposal Writing for Horizon Projects’. We are happy to announce that we were able to recruit experienced trainers from LEITAT, Spain and the Danish Technological Institute, Denmark, as well as Séan McCarthy to facilitate these online workshops. Due to Covid-19, WAITRO is unfortunately not able to do this workshop in Barcelona, the workshops will take place online. We are taking the different time zones into consideration and are working on finding accomodating solutions for all members. The program is free of charge for WAITRO members. Applications for both workshops are now closed.
