Who should watch this recording?

This webinar will be helpful for anyone interested in collaborating in the Horizon Europe Health two – stage call and who are looking to submit a proposal idea or join a consortium. Delegates from all countries including European Member States and Horizon Europe Associated Countries are welcome.

This event is not an information dissemination event but is aimed at those pitching project ideas and building consortia for European Research and Innovation collaborations and networking.

This event will focus on the Health Work Programme 2023-24 calls that are two – stage and the first – stage deadline is 19 September 2023. (see list of specific topics.)

The event is suitable for those who have identified specific call topics listed above or at least areas of interest, and are ready to discuss concrete ideas with potential partners to submit a proposal. We recommend you familiarise yourself with the Horizon Europe Health 2023-24 Work Programme calls in preparation for this event.  If you still need support with other questions, then the European Commission’s Horizon Europe Health Info Day presentations are online. The NCP Team and Innovate UK KTN can answer your questions and arrange a call.

Why should I watch this recording?

This Horizon Europe Health Cluster Consortia Building Event will help you find partners to form international collaborations and strategic partnerships. The key focus of the event will be to provide hands-on advice to give you the final boost and get you ready for submission into the forthcoming 2024 two-stage call, which has a first – stage deadline on 19 Sept 2023 in the Cluster 1 Horizon Europe Health Work Programme.

Delegates could present a pitch about their project idea or capability offering, and were able to talk to pitch presenters and other delegates in small groups. The UK National Contacts Point Team for Health and Innovate KTN’s European Programmes Team were also available for small group discussions to answer any specific or more confidential questions.
