On behalf of the DANUBE-INCO.NET project and the Joint Programming Initiative Urban Europe we would like to officially invite you to this Workshop on joint research funding opportunities that will take place on March 23 and 24, 2017 in Vienna/Austria at the premises of the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG).
The Workshop will start with a joint working dinner on Thursday evening, March 23, will continue on Friday morning, March 24 and will not finish later than 4.30 pm Friday afternoon.
Based on previous workshops, activities and discussions on transnational cooperation of funding agencies this workshop will focus on a particular transnational research and innovation initiative focusing on urban matters. The mechanisms, priorities, instruments and activities of the Joint Programming Initiative Urban Europe will be presented and opportunities for Danube Region countries to join various (funding) activities will be discussed. Relevant conditions for joining and participating in the initiative will be reflected and the requirements of the Danube Region countries for such funding engagements will be identified.
The workshop addresses therefore in particular R&I decision makers of ministries and funding bodies/agencies in the Danube Region countries interested in transnational cooperation on urban matters as well as programme owners and managers of urban-related national research and innovation programmes.
