The INCONET-GCC2 Consortium will host its international conference, entitled “EU-GCC Research & Innovation cooperation: The way forward”, on November 29, 2016 at the Metropole Hotel, Brussels.
The purpose of this Conference is to bring together key stakeholders from both the EU and GCC countries in order to take stock of the results of the INCONET-GCC2 project, identify opportunities-threats, and explore ways to enhance the future bi-regional R&I cooperation between EU and GCC. The discussions will be held at different but at the same interconnected levels including policy dialogue, capacity building, and concrete R&I cooperation opportunities through the available EU R&I funding opportunities, with main focus on Horizon 2020.
High-level stakeholders from the whole innovation chain (researchers, policy makers, business community/entrepreneurs), from both EU and GCC countries are expected to attend the Conference.
