News archive - SAVE THE DATE for the WBC-INCO.NET Final Conference: March 27/28 in Vienna

To celebrate and maximize the successes and results obtained by WBC-INCO.NET throughout the years, a large Final Conference is announced on 27-28 march 2014, in Vienna.

The WBC-INCO.NET Final Conference will bring together about 200 science policymakers, scientists and industry representatives from the Western Balkan and EU member states.

While the core focus of the conference will be primarily on Horizon 2020 and thus the collaboration in science between WBC and EU member states under the new Programme, information on other on-going/up-coming activities in WBC in particular focusing innovation issues will be exchanged.

The event will entail parallel sessions where results and lessons learned in previous collaboration will be presented so as to also merge the knowledge gained within several other projects and strategic approaches focusing on the region. Policy recommendations and lessons learned will be formulated by participants and joint conclusions drafted.

Additionally, a back-to-back BROKERAGE EVENT will be held in light of the Horizon 2020 intending to support the networking and cooperation between WBC and EU researchers in Horizon 2020. The overall goal is to provide an environment also to build new partnerships for cooperation in Horizon 2020. Thus some scientists, within the project budget limits, both from WBC and EU member states will be supported by e.g. travel costs, while e.g. research organisations or industry representatives will be offered an EXHIBITION platform for promoting dedicated projects or own innovative products in selected fields (promotion stands etc.).

Further details will follow on this portal in due time. For the time being, SAVE THE DATE for the WBC-INCO.NET Final Conference:
