Saarland University in cooperation with the State Chancellery invites you to the Kick-Off Event „Horizon Europe: Research and Innovation for a better Europe – Opportunities and Expectations from the Saarland’s Perspective“ on 11. December 2020, which will take place online.

Together with members from Saarland’s research and innovation landscape and representatives from Politics, Education and Industry we welcome you to this Kick-Off Event. Listen to interesting talks on Horizon Europe and take a virtual tour of our project showroom, to find out more about some of the Saarland’s EU projects from Horizon 2020.

Talks will begin at 13:00 o’clock with an opening speech from the Saarland University President, Manfred J. Schmitt:

  • Tobias Hans – Saarland Prime Minister

Following the talks you are welcome to join a panel discussion at 14:30 o’clock, where the speakers will answer questions directly about the opportunities the European Research and Innovation Funding Programme offers, and the expectations linked therein. Throughout this time the project showroom will be open to visit at your leisure.

We have also lined up a series of satellite events for a digital „Horizon Europe“ week from 14.12.2020 to 16.12.2020. Join to find out more about specific work programmes and other helpful supporting measures.
