Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation program ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020). BTO has received funding from FORNY2020 program at Norwegian Research Council to carry out a project about defining the position of TTOs in the Horizon 2020 program. The project includes exploring and analysis of services provided for both academic and industrial customers.
As part of the project BTO will organise a nationwide seminar in Bergen on 9th of March 2015.
Current TTO industry experts and advisers from Norwegian Research Council will be present at the seminar to share their knowledge, discuss the details of Horizon 2020, and define roles and areas for TTOs participation in the application process for funding.
With the goal of promoting innovation, BTO hopes to raise awareness about available research funding from EU and attract more researchers and businesses to implement their ideas.
