You are cordially invited to join this workshop in two parts. The preliminary aim is a physical meeting at KTH, with a fallback as a hybrid/on-line meeting. The physical venue takes 30 people.

Lunch will be served for those registered for the physical meeting.

In the first workshop part, the focus is on opportunities in Horizon Europe, the continuation of the H2020 EU program, which recently started. The program is very large with many different parts.

We here focus on dissemination and discussing concrete calls and opportunities in the area most relevant for Digitalized industry.

Another focus will be on best practices and how KTH can support proposal efforts. Bring your questions and ideas!

In the second part, a couple of industrial organizations will be sharing insights from their industrial roadmaps. We will also come back to the Horizon Europe and partnership program opportunities, and open up for a discussion regarding the industrial needs and project proposal opportunities.

The workshop is particularly directed towards new and young KTH faculty, but also open to all interested.
