    The main goal of the BioHorizon events in Brussels was to provide the most complete information and training for future successful applications for the H2020 Work Program and the next Horizon Europe program; to acquaint the participants with Social Call Challenges 2 of the Horizon 2020 Work Program and to organize bilateral meetings for partnership development and creation of consortia for potential H2020 grants during the BioHorizon SC2 and KET-B Brokerage Event.



    During “BioHorizon interactive training. Opportunity for the Proposers in the H2020 SC2 Work Program”, small groups of participants formed the main points of H2020 applications, following the recommendations of the BioHorizon leaders Bozena Podlaska, Saske Hoving and Matteo Sabini.

    During the “BioHorizon SC2 and KET-B Brokerage Event” some useful recommendations for the formulation of H2020 competitive proposals were presented in the form of reports by event organizers; flash-presentations were presented simultaneously in three sections: Sustainable Food Security (1), Rural Renaissance + Blue Growth (2), Food & Natural Resources + KET-Biotech (3), and Liliia Kalachniuk participated in 10 bilateral meetings together with future potential coordinators or partners of H2020 proposals, who represented various universities, private companies, and EU NCPs.
