Workshop series on proposal development for Horizon Europe Climate City Contract

KTH and Stockholm City

Are you excited about the prospect of creating a joint research proposal for a Horizon Europe call in partnership with Stockholm City within the framework of the Climate City Contract? If so, our workshop series might be the ideal opportunity for you!

Time: Wed 2023-11-15 13.00 - Fri 2023-11-24 12.00

Location: KTH Campus

Language: English

Participating: Research Support Office, KTH, and Stadsledningskontoret, Stockholm City

Export to calendar

In collaboration with Stockholm City, KTH offers three workshops to explore the possibilities of strengthened cooperation between KTH and Stockholm City within the Horizon Europe and Climate City Contract framework. The workshop is a post-event of Forsknings- och innovationssamverkan för det europeiska klimatkontraktet which was co-organised by Stockholm city and KTH on 13 September, 2023.

With these three workshops, we hope to foster the exchange of expertise, networking, and developing collaborative proposals in Horizon Europe. The events suit senior researchers and professors with prior experience coordinating national or EU projects.

The workshops will focus on three Horizon Europe calls within the Cluster 5 Work Programme from 2023 to 2024. The calls are selected based on KTH’s research area of interest and Stockholm City’s prioritised area of applications and challenges within the Climate City Contract. Feedback and input received during the first workshop series will be considered in the subsequent workshop series, targeting the development of the proposal concept and consortium building.

The workshops will provide insights on the selected calls (see below), followed by a presentation of challenge areas by Stockholm City and a discussion on the possibilities for synergy and joint efforts to develop a proposal. The events are arranged by Research Support Office (KTH) and Stadsledningskontoret (Stockholm City).

The three workshops are all connected to Horizon Europe's cluster 5: Climate, Energy and Mobility.
