MAGIC Project organises H2020 Infor Day on ICT-39 Call

n a bid to shed more light on opportunities that exist under the -39 Call, the MAGIC Project will on Wednesday, 14 December 2016 hold a virtual H2020 Infor Day on the ICT-39 Call, where officers from the European Commission (EC) and practitioners involved in similar projects will talk comprehensively about the Call.

The ICT-39-Call is a call for funding under the Horizon 2020 framework recently published by the European Commission. The Call gives an opportunity to researchers or those that have innovative ideas that can address specific requirements of end user requirements in developing countries to apply for funding.

Research grants of up to 2 million euro will be awarded to teams of organisations complementing each other with a particular focus on the participation of relevant developing country innovation stakeholders and end- user community representatives.

Those interested to submit proposals can do so when the submission of proposals opens on 8 December 2016. Submission of proposals ends in April 2017.

And in order to give researchers a chance to hear more on how to write the proposals for the call, who to partner with when submitting the proposal among other things, officials from the European Commission will from 13h00 to 15h00 GMT avail themselves to give more information during a virtual Infor Day on the Call which has been organised by the MAGIC Project.

The Infor Day will be held using VC Espresso, a service available on Colaboratorio, a virtual collaboration platform used by the MAGIC project and interested participants are encouraged to first register online in order to participate in this event.

Details regarding the event are available online.
