Vinnova and the European Commission invite representatives from the business and other non-academic sectors to an information day about possibilities in Marie-Skłodowska Curie Actions (MSCA) and Horizon 2020. During the day, valuable experiences will be shared by representatives already familiar with the MSCA and Horizon 2020. The target audience for the event are employers and management staff but also representatives from support organisations working close with the non-academic sector are welcome to participate.
The aim of this information day is to encourage representatives from the business sector to increase their participation in the Marie-Skłodowska Curie Actions (MSCA). The funding offered via MSCA enables excellent possibilities for a company to:
– establish collaboration with research organisations
– take advantage from state-of-the-art and high quality equipment of universities and research institutions
– get access to R&I talents and highly skilled researchers.
Firms can recruit or simply host researchers during their fellowships (with or without PhD), as well as participate in staff exchange programmes that enable transfer of advanced knowledge. The information day offers excellent possibilities for networking with Horizon 2020 National Contact Points, speakers and representatives from the European Commission.
Date: February 17, 2016, 10.00-16.00 (Registration and coffee from 09.30). Lunch included.
Location: Spårvagnshallarna, Birger Jarlsgatan 57A, Stockholm (map)
