Location / Venue: Gaborone / TBC
Country: Botswana

The objectives of the workshop are to:

  • Increase the awareness of Horizon 2020 and the opportunities particularly suitable for Africa-EU collaboration in Horizon 2020;
  • Describe the rules for participation, how to submit a proposal, and how to identify partners for a proposal;
  • Inform about NCPs and their role in Horizon 2020; and,
  • Provide information and tools for new or potential NCPs to better carry out the tasks to support their research community.

"The workshop aims to bring together potential and current National Contact Points from the Southern African Development Countries (SADC) region to take part in a joint training", the concept note states. Information regarding the rules, opportunities and processes involved with participating in Horizon 2020 will be presented, as well as "hands-on training" for NCPs. NCPs will also share lessons learned and experiences for mutual learning and development.

The information sharing workshop is expected to draw researchers, research and innovation representatives and current or potential NCPs.
