FET Workshop in London – 24 November 2015

The Knowledge Transfer Network, in collaboration with the UK National Contact Point for Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) in Horizon 2020, is organising a workshop in London on 24 November 2015. The focus of the workshop will be on the new Work Programme for 2016-2017. In particular, the workshop will feature presentations on:

  • the FET Open & FET Proactive schemes, their context and corresponding funding opportunities;
  • success stories from UK FET grant holders;
  • a view from a far-looking industry;
  • practical aspects on ‘How to do it’.

The event will take place at the BIS Conference Centre between 10am and 4pm.

Attendance is free of charge but the number of places is limited. Booking is essential and can be done via the event website. Further information is also contained in the workshop flyer.


Horizon 2020: Future Emerging Technologies – Call


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!

Horizon 2020 – Future & Emerging Technologies Workshop

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.
