We will hear about the European research landscape and discuss the research themes covered by the Horizon Europe ‘Restore our Ocean and Waters by 2030’ Mission. We will explore how the UK can continue to contribute to European research with a view to supporting collaborations for current and future Mission calls.

Please note: This event is not an information dissemination event, but will focus on the sharing of project ideas and brokering partnerships for European Research and Innovation collaborations and networking. If you still need support with understanding the Clusters, Work Programmes and scope of call topics, please watch the recordings from our previous Horizon Europe Cluster Events series. The NCP Team and Innovate UK KTN are available to answer your questions and arrange a call separately.

Who can Attend?

This online event is open for UK and European organisations with an interest in collaborating in Horizon Europe Research and Innovation projects in Oceans and Waters research.

Why Should I Attend?

The Horizon Europe UK National Contact Points will provide information on the opportunities available under this mission. Expert speakers will outline UK and European research capabilities in this field and how that aligns with the themes under the Horizon Europe “Restore our Ocean and Waters by 2030” Mission. Delegates will have the opportunity to meet and share ideas in thematic breakout rooms.
