CELTIC EUROGIA Proposers Day at Nokia premises in Madrid

January 29, 2020@10:00 am - 5:00 pm CET

CELTIC and EUROGIA are pleased to announce the joint call that closes on March 30th 2020. This is a perfect opportunity to respond better to current trends that require a cross-cutting approach. The goal of the joint call is to expand knowledge, boost visibility and promote cooperative efforts for innovative results.

The aim of the Proposers Day was to learn about CELTIC and EUROGIA, to discuss project ideas with potential partners and to find out about funding opportunities in your countries. This Proposers Day hosted participants from 8 different countries and took take place at Nokia premises in Madrid on 29 January 2020.

Proposers Days are discussion fora for organisations that are interested to participate in a research project and want to benefit from performing collaborative research through one of the EUREKA Clusters CELTIC-NEXT or EUROGIA.

This was the first time that the two EUREKA Clusters team up for a Joint Call and we expect that Project Proposals in telecommunications and ICT as well as in the green Energy domain will be created.

Because it is a Joint Call between EUROGIA and CELTIC-NEXT, the applications will be submitted via the Call portal in order to synchronize the submission process.
