UAL and the UK Research Office in Brussels (UKRO) are holding a workshop for UAL academics on EU Horizon 2020 funding opportunities. This event will build on and leverage the ambitions of the UAL research community. All UAL academics including early career researchers  are encouraged to attend.
The workshop aims to raise awareness of the latest funding opportunities offered by the Horizon 2020 programme for Research and Innovation. It will focus on calls and topics relevant for socio-economic research, co-creation, design and art-inspired innovation. 
The workshop will also shed light on the evaluation process and will present the experience of a successful academic currently recipient of  a funded Horizon 2020 project.
The workshop is organised as part of the Research Fortnight, a two-week exploration of the richness of the University’s research activities, with events taking place across the University between 5 and 16 March 2018. 

Speakers include: Malgorzata Czerwiec European Advisor at UKRO and UK National Contact Point for the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions.

It delivers a subscription-based advisory service for HEIs and research organisations and provides National Contact Point services on behalf of the UK Government for the H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions and the ERC programmes.
