Black Sea Horizon Project prepares Workshops to identify 'Pertinent Topics for RTI Cooperation'

The Black Sea Horizon project announces 3 workshops scheduled for March 2016, and focusing on the three thematic fields 'sustainable agriculture', 'resource efficiency and environment', and 'chemistry and smart materials'. They will take place in Sofia, Moscow and Tbilisi, and offer a platform to discuss and identify future research sub-topics that are of mutual interest for both regions. 
  1. Black Sea Horizon International Workshop: 'The Future of Agriculture: Grand Challenges and Technological Change'

    This workshop will be organised by the National Research University Higher School of Economics (HWE). The workshop is scheduled for the beginning of March 2016 (tentative date: 03.03.2016) in Moscow. The workshop aims to discuss and identify pertinent research topics of mutual interest for Research, Technology and Innovation cooperation among the EU Member States, Horizon 2020 Associated Countries and countries of the Black Sea region in the field of Sustainable Agriculture in view of further take-up in Horizon 2020 and future bi- or multilateral joint calls. Draft Agenda 'Future of Agriculture'

  2. Black Sea Horizon International Workshop: 'Resource efficiency and environment - Black Sea Region Challenges'

    This workshop will be organised by the Association European Studies for Innovative Development of Georgia (ESIDG). The workshop is scheduled for 22 March 2016 in Tbilisi, Georgia. The workshop’s aim is to discuss and identify pertinent research topics of mutual interest for research, technology and innovation cooperation among the EU Member States, Horizon 2020 Associated Countries and countries of the Black Sea region (preparing for further uptake in Horizon 2020, and future bi- or multilateral joint calls).

  3. Black Sea Horizon International Workshop: 'Applied research in chemistry: Smart materials for a smart future'

    This workshop will be organised by the Applied Research and Communications Fund (ARC Fund) and is scheduled for March 2016 in Sofia, Bulgaria. The aim of the workshop is to discuss and identify pertinent research topics in the field of advanced materials, which are of mutual interest for research, technology and innovation cooperation among the EU Member States and the countries of the Black Sea region for further uptake in forthcoming Horizon 2020 calls for proposals as well as in future international or regional bi-lateral and multilateral research programmes. Advanced materials include 'green' materials, self-healing materials, piezoelectric materials, memory metals, advanced composites. Participants in the workshop will include about 25 prominent experts from EU member states and the Black Sea countries.
