Horizon Europe Cluster 3 Info-day and Brokerage Event

Welcome to Horizon Europe Cluster 3 Info-day and Brokerage Event

Presentations from both days are available for download HERE.

The event is organized by the Network of Security National Contact Points – SEREN5, in close cooperation with the European Commission’s Directorate-General Migration and Home Affairs and the European Research Executive Agency.

This international information-day event will highlight research topics covered within the 2023 calls for proposals in Cluster 3. Participants will also have the possibility to join a matchmaking event dedicated to the topics of the 2023 Cluster 3 calls. The matchmaking event will give participants the opportunity to join pre-arranged meetings with other participants in order to identify possible collaborators and to facilitate the setup of Horizon Europe project consortia. Call topics included in the matchmaking system come from recently published official Cluster 3 Work Programme 

Researchers, entrepreneurs and other stakeholders actively looking for project partners, can submit their project ideas for a flash Pitch presentation session, that will take place before bilateral meetings.
