Information Event on Horizon 2020 ICT Calls

It’s short notice (this only came through to me on Friday evening) however some of you may be interested in an event taking place in London on Wednesday, which will be providing information on the ICT Leadership in Enabling and Industrial Technologies topics. Of particular interest to us in Computer Science would be the ICT 28 topic of Cross-cutting ICT KETs.

If you do go along let me know as it would be great to hear your feedback from the event.
