Roland Poms, Secretary General of MoniQA Association, will attend the Info Day on 2014 Horizon 2020 calls for proposals - Societal Challenge 2 and LEIT Biotechnology (ec.europa.eu/research/bioeconomy/news-events/news/20140117_en.htm). After MoniQA's successful completion of its Network of Excellence in 2012 and its foundation as legal entity in 2011, MoniQA has been directly or indirectly involved in various project proposals. The most recent success was partnering in iFAAM (2013-2017). With the available expertise and experience with attracting EU funding for collaborative research projects and involvement in EU’s Framework Programmes (FP4-FP7) as Coordinator (ECC 2002, MoniQA), as Workpackage Leader or Partner (HEALTHGRAIN, ISEKI, CommNET, PlantLibra, Connect4Action, iFAAM, MyNewGut, MycoSpec, EMPORA) or as Member of the Advisory Board (MycoRed, DREAM, TradeIT), at the MoniQA Secretariat (c/o ICC Headquarters, Vienna, Austria), MoniQA will again facilitate and/or partner in collaborative project proposals with Horizon 2020. As a special service for MoniQA Members, Roland Poms and the MoniQA Secretariat in Vienna will support members’ initiatives and provide advice in partner search or direct requests to programme officers.
Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly € 80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020) - in addition to the private investment that this money will attract. It promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market.
