V4 Conference 2022: Benefits and challenges of participation in co-funded partnerships with a thematic focus on Cluster 6


The National Research, Development and Innovation Office (NRDIO) together with the Czech Liaison Office for Education & Research (CZELO), the Polish Science Contact Agency of the PAS (PolSCA) and the Slovak Liaison Office for Research and Development (SLORD) are organising a joint event under the Hungarian presidency of the Visegrád 4 Group with the title: “Benefits and challenges of participation in co-funded partnerships with a thematic focus on Cluster 6: Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment”.

The opening presentation, provided by the European Commission about the strategic planning of the partnership landscape and the first results of the partnership monitoring exercise will be followed by a policy panel, which will cover topics like the planning of support structures, funding and human resources in order to facilitate the successful participation in co-funded partnerships. The scientific panel will showcase good examples of participation either in projects or in advisory structures of the partnerships. During lunch we will have the possibility to continue our discussions in a more informal way.

The event will take place on 13 June 2022 (10.00-14.00) at the Permanent Representation of Hungary to the EU (1040 Brussels, Rue de Trèves 92-98.). Participation in the event is free of charge but registration through the LINK is necessary (also for online participation).

As we can only provide seats for 60-70 participants, early registration for on-site participation is recommended. A final confirmation and programme with speakers will be sent one week before the event.
