Enterprise Europe Network at Invest NI, in partnership with the Northern Ireland Contact Point (NICP) for Engineering, invites you to attend a Horizon 2020 networking event for ICT, Advanced Materials and Manufacturing.

Horizon 2020 is the European Union’s Research and Innovation Programme, with the 2018-2020 work programme representing a budget of around €30billion.

Why attend?

This event will cover Digital Technologies, Robotics, 5G, AI and Data, Cyber Security, Biotechnology, Energy Efficient Buildings, Factories of the Future, Battery Technologies and many other opportunities across these thematic areas.

If you have an idea that could potentially go through the innovation process to commercialisation, or if you have a R&D idea that you need to develop with the help of a consortium, then this event is for you.

Places are limited; please register early to avoid disappointment.
