Next Destination: Horizon Europe – Funding for Digital Technologies and Mobility

Horizon Europe: Digitalisierung und Mobilität

On 1 January 2021, "Horizon Europe" - the EU's new framework programme for research and innovation - was launched. Horizon Europe will run from 2021 to 2027 and has a budget of 95.5 billion euros.  As part of its online event series "Next Destination: Horizon Europe", BayFOR invites you to find out about Horizon Europe and its work programmes at an early stage. On 18 March 2021, the focus will be on digital technologies and mobility. The event is interesting for all Bavarian stakeholders from research, development and innovation who want to internationalise their activities.

The topics of this event are: Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Materials, Production, Batteries, Hydrogen, Process Industry and Mobility.  Proven experts from the National Contact Points DIT (Digital and Industrial Technologies), Energy and Transport will present the new Framework Programme and its funding opportunities for technology-driven projects. Most of  the funding topics which will be presented during the event are included in the Bavarian high-tech agenda.

The event will start with a general introduction to Horizon Europe. This will be followed by different, parallel online sessions on future calls for proposals on the above-mentioned topics under Horizon Europe. In addition, three applicants from Bavaria will share their experiences and report on the successful preparation of their EU applications in the "Best Practice Session". A presentation of the services offered by the NCPs and BayFOR will round off the programme.

Most of the topics addressed in the event on 18 March 2021 will also be the focus of our international EEN brokerage event on 29 April 2021. Here, you will have the opportunity to specifically search for international partners for your R&I project.
