Workshop on Horizon 2020 and EU Funding possibilities for US Researchers and Faculty

The Miami-Florida Jean Monnet Center of Excellence at FIU, in collaboration with FIU Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine, organized under the framework of BILAT USA 4.0 a practical workshop EU-US research collaboration and funding opportunities in Horizon 2020, the European framework program for research and innovation for FIU faculty. Viktoria Bodnarova presented funding possibilities for U.S. researchers and answered to questions on Horizon 2020.

The session “Practical Workshop on Horizon 2020 and EU Funding possibilities for US Researchers and Faculty” – with over 45 participants – took place at Florida International University Computing & Information Science School on Thursday, June 15, 2017, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 pm. The participants in the workshop hailed from FIU different departments, including the Office of Faculty & Global Affairs, the Office of Research and Economic Development, the School of Computing & Information Sciences, the Environment Department, and the School of Medicine. This diverse group participated in a lively and active discussion over the course of one hour.

By showing the success of US participants in previous EU funding initiatives, such as FP7, Viktoria Bodnarova showed researchers that funding from the EU was accessi-ble and possible, particularly in areas of health, ICT, food, agriculture, biotechnology, and energy.
