Since 14 July the Participant Portal provides a new service for finding potential partners for Horizon 2020 proposals. The service is complementary to existing partner search services offered by a number of NCPs and other organisations. It makes use of existing data in the Commission's databases for automatically creating organisation profiles. Organisation profiles In its first version, the service allows searching for organisations and displaying their profiles. The profiles comprise: ·Organisation name, city, country, Participant Identification Code (PIC) .Organisation type (Higher or secondary education establishment, SME, etc.) ·The list of EU projects in which the organisation is involved ·An overview of its main collaboration links with other organisations ·Keywords related to its projects, indicating its fields of expertise The bulk of the organisation profile is created automatically. In addition, LEARs or Account Administrators can edit two data fields: ·Add or delete keywords ·Add a summary description of your organisation Contact organisations or project participants Users of the portal can contact organisations, via a web form that sends a message to the LEAR and Account Administrator. Similarly, users can contact participants in projects (Participant Contacts). These functions do not disclose the identity of the LEARs, Account Administrators or Participant Contacts. Plans for future developments The service will be expanded in two additional stages to include: ·The possibility to indicate an interest in finding partners related to a particular call topic (open or forthcoming). Planned delivery: December 2017 ·The option to publish profiles of individual persons and make them searchable. As for the organisation profiles, also the person profiles will be created automatically, based on the available data. For the person profiles, any disclosure requires the explicit consent of the person. In the initial stage, only the person herself will have access to her profile, with a possibility to decide on the subset of data that can be made public (including the possibility to not make any data public). Planned delivery: 1st quarter of 2018

Le programme européen pour la recherche et l’innovation H2020 est une opportunité inestimable pour le chercheur et l’acteur socio-économique algériens de s’impliquer dans une recherche internationale novatrice et innovante. Afin de sensibiliser la communauté algérienne, à la fois de recherche scientifique et celle aspirant à une R&D innovante, à l’importance de ce programme, un réseau de chercheurs et d’acteurs socio-économiques a été mis en place. L’agence thématique de recherche en sciences et technologie, en sa qualité de coordinatrice dudit réseau, organisera « la première rencontre du réseau algérien dédié à la promotion du programme H2020 en Algérie » et ce le 27 Avril 2017 à la salle de Conférence du MESRS.
Dans le cadre des activités du réseau, des réunions thématiques seront organisées le long du mois de mai 2017 entre les membres de chaque consortium et la coordinatrice du réseau afin de discuter des démarches à suivre pour une dissémination efficace des appels H2020 auprès de la communauté algérienne. Le tableau ci-dessous donne la date et le lieu pour chaque réunion thématique.Read more ....
The LEAP-Agri call for preliminary proposals invites consortia composed of at least four research organisations and/or private and public practitioners from four of the partner countries (two African and two European) to submit project proposals for research and innovation in the countries concerned with an added value for the EU-AU partnership on food and nutrition security and sustainable agriculture (FNSSA). The proposal development and execution should be driven by local demand and include an approach that contributes to enhancing impact. Specific requirements for applicants may differ between institutes/countries. Please click on the link below for a document providing full guidelines on how to apply.
LEAP-Agri is a partnership between 30 partners including 24 funding organisations from nine African countries (i.e. Algeria, Burkina Faso, Cameroun, Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Senegal, South Africa and Uganda), nine European countries (i.e. Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Nederland, Norway, Portugal, Spain and Turkey) and an international organization (i.e. CIHEAM-Bari based in Italy).
EXANDAS is a research European project which aims to apply emerging and cutting edge technologies in the field of Natural Products in order to fully and efficiently exploit the wastes and by-products produced during the processing of economically important aromatic/medicinal plants. The cornerstone of EXANDAS project is the development of novel processes based on eco-friendly technologies for the efficient extraction, purification and transformation of active ingredients, as well as the complete chemical characterization and biological evaluation of produced extracts and pure compounds that can be commercially exploited. Optimization and scaling up of these procedures, as well as formulation using emerging technologies will lead to the development of novel final products. The consortium consists of six academic and six SMEs partners, which under the coordination of Dr. Nektarios Aligiannis, University of Athens, will join forces and exchange know-how through an extended secondments scheme to advance Research & Innovation.
The goal of Olive-Net project is to introduce a novel approach for the exploration, valorization and marketing of new products based on bioactive compounds from Olea europaea. This will be achieved through an extended and well-balanced scheme of researcherâ€™s secondments between universities and enterprises from EU & Associated countries as well as universities from Third countries. A mutual scientific project developed on the needs and interests of both sectors exploiting the existing expertise will be the base of this proposal. Products and side-products of the olive tree such as olive oil, edible olive fruits, olive mill waste and olive tree leaves, will be subjected to a series of state-of-the-art extraction and isolation cascades in order to provide extracts, enriched fractions and isolated compounds of high purity.
The project will enhance and support regional smart specialization and development by increasing research capacity, effective mobility of young innovators/researchers and shared knowledge to improve their participation in the EU research area. It will contribute to the establishment of favourable and stable conditions for international cooperation and the set-up of a Common Knowledge and Innovation Space of specialization in the SMN for a real socio-economic impact, based on co-ownership and mutual benefits
This project received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 645809 over a period of 36 months (04/2015-03/2018) and will support the EU-Africa High Level Policy Dialogue (HLPD) on science, technology and innovation (STI).
Le Rapport de 2017 sur l'impact de l'instrument PME, vise à mettre en évidence les premières idées sur les tendances de croissance des PME européennes ayant bénéficié de financement dans le cadre du H2020 ainsi que les caractéristiques clés de ce système. Cette étude inclue toutes les des données de 2014 à 2016.
This year the Energy Information Days will present the new funding opportunities and innovative schemes offered by Horizon 2020’s Work Programme 2018-2020. Applying for funding is a competitive process, and only the best project proposals will be selected. If you would like to know more about the type of projects we will be looking for, save the date and join us in Brussels next 23, 24 and 25 October 2017.
Information Day and brokerage event on the Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2018-2020, Challenge "Climate Action, Environment, Resource Efficiency & Raw Materials" - 2018 calls - will take place on 8 and 9 November 2017 in Brussels in the European Commission's Charlemagne building, rue de la Loi 170.
