Horizon 2020 is looking to support a large set of early stage, high risk visionary science and technology collaborative research projects is necessary for the successful exploration of new foundations for radically new future technologies. The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of between 2 and 4 million EUR would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately.
Proposals must aim at one of the following two impacts:
• Initiating a radically new line of technology by establishing Proof-of-Principle of a new technological possibility and its new scientific underpinning
• Kick-starting an emerging innovation eco-system of high-potential actors around a solid baseline of feasibility and potential for a new technological option, ready for early take-up.
Deadline for applications: 30th March 2015, with the internal deadline the 23rd March 2015. Please Contact Us as soon as possible if you intend to apply or have any questions!

The Knowledge Transfer Network, in conjunction with the UK FET NCP and UKRO (so many acronyms) are putting on a FET workshop in London that I thought might be of interest to people in department.
The workshop will address:
- The H2020 FET Open scheme and its context.
- The new faster FET Open proposal and evaluation process.
- Future outlook for evolution of the FET arena.
The event is completely free to attend. For more information and registration click here.
