On last 5th of December, Euclide proposed a one-day regional Forum with a special focus on H2020 opportunities : Methods and Experts to succeed with your project. A general overview of the Horizon 2020 programme introduced the event, followed by two major presentations of successful projects. Thematical stands enabled participants to access a thorough review of all calls for applications and to potentially identify one that applies to their research project. European Commission national contact points presented guidelines and recommendations in their specific domain. The afternoon offered a series of clear and organised workshops detailing key aspects of applications.
