EU Research Day at Chemnitz University of Technology

Information Session on the EU application process will take place on 6 November 2019

On 6 November 2019, an information day will take place at Chemnitz University of Technology, centered around the possibilities of European research funding – the so-called “EU Research Day”. During this event, scientists at Chemnitz University of Technology will be able to obtain comprehensive information and advice on European funding and support options within the competition for EU funds.

After a greeting from Chemnitz University of Technology President Prof. Dr. Gerd Strohmeier, Saxony’s Liaison Office in Brussels will give an overview of European research funding during the morning session, and this will be followed by presentations on concrete support opportunities by the Saxon State Ministry for Science and the Arts. This part of the event will be rounded off by a panel discussion with applicants from Chemnitz University of Technology on the opportunities and challenges surrounding applying for Horizon 2020.

In the afternoon session, individual advising will be offered, and four parallel workshops will be held which build on the themes from the morning session, on the topics of: The European Research Council (ERC), Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA)/Individual Fellowships/Innovative Training Networks, Collaborative Projects, and Administrative Issues.

The venue for the information day is the main lecture hall building of Chemnitz University of Technology (Orangerie), at Reichenhainer Str. 90. The morning session will take place in room N113 at 9:00am. Participation in EU Research Day is free of charge.

The full program can also be found in the President’s Newsletter 51/2019 (german; internal link). Registration is possible online.

The EU Research Day is supported by Saxony’s Liaison Office in Brussels, the Saxon State Ministry of Science and Art, the Central EU Service Facility Saxony (ZEUSS) and the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN).
