EU-TURKEY CO-OPERATION ON RESEARCH AND INNOVATION: SUPPORTING TURKISH ORGANISATIONS IN THE STRATEGIC WIDESPREAD 2017 - TEAMING CALL

08 June 2016, Wednesday

WIDESPREAD 2017 Teaming Call addresses the challenge of Research and Innovation (R&I) area convergence among European countries, both EU member states and associated countries. It is a call of strategic importance for Turkish Research institutions that aim at creating new “Centres of Excellence” and create and promote a long-term science and innovation strategy.

A very successful workshop took place for a full week (9-13 May 2016), organised by “Turkey in Horizon 2020” Project with the active support of TUBITAK and the Turkish Ministry of Development. The workshop’s aim was to provide a “hands-on” practical training, to selected coordinators in the preparation of key sections of their project proposals. This Proposal Development Workshop offered to the participants the chance to learn from experienced experts with long involvement in successful H2020 proposals and projects.

It was a demanding, interactive, 5-days’ workshop, where the 22 participants presented their ideas, discussed their strategies, shared experiences and learned how to avoid mistakes in their proposal.

An identical, 2nd workshop will be organized on the 18th of July, to give the opportunity to, even more, participants to improve their skills and their chances of success in the call.

Both events are organised in Ankara Plaza hotel, in the centre of the city (Bestekar Sok. No:5 Kavaklidere Ankara).
