FET (Future and Emerging Technologies) in Horizon 2020 Info Day

Where and When

Athens (National Hellenic Research Foundation), 48 Vassileos Constantinou Ave.

An Information Day focusing on the actions of FET Flagships, part of the ‘Future and Emerging Technologies’(FET) programme in Horizon 2020 is being organized by the National Documentation Centre (EKT), National Contact Point for the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme, the General Secretariat for Research and Technology and the European Commission ( Directorate General for Communication Networks, Content & Technologies) on Tuesday, September 26th (9:00 – 14:00) at the National Hellenic Research Foundation (48, Vas. Konstantinou, Athens).

The ‘Future and Emerging Technologies’ (FET) programme supports new cutting-edge technologies by strengthening the competitiveness and development of Europe and creating new highly-skilled jobs. The event, in which National Representatives of the programme and European Commission representatives will participate, will present the initiatives of FET Flagships (Graphene, Human Brain, Quantum), the Work Programme 2018-2020 ( the Greek contribution to this particular programme), as well as the Greek positions for the next programming period (9th Framework Programme for research and innovation).

The FET programme comprises three complementary actions:

  • ‘FET Open’: supporting ideas for radically new future technologies still at the basic stage and employing few researchers
  • ‘FET Proactive’: supporting emerging technologies in order to create a critical mass of European researchers in promising exploratory research
  • ‘FET Flagships’: supporting initiatives through which hundreds of European researchers can join forces to resolve ambitious scientific and technological challenges such as understanding the human brain or the development of new materials like graphene.

The agenda of the event is available on: http://www.ekt.gr/en/events/program/21077

Participation is free of charge, but completion of a registration form is obligatory.

The event will be streamed live via http://media.ekt.gr/live/
