Today, on 25th April, the FORWARD Coordinator Agencia Canaria De Investigación Innovación Y Sociedad De La Información (ACIISI-GOBCAN) and the partner Plataforma Oceánica de Canarias (PLOCAN) have implemented a FORWARD WP4 capacity building event action, aimed to explore opportunities offered under Widening in the new Horizon Europe framework programme.

The training was provided in a hybrid format, both online and onsite at the PLOCAN premises. The event counted with the support of the Spanish National Contact Point (NCP) represented by Ana Hidalgo, Head of the European Programmes Office at the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and at the NCP for Horizon Europe.

The event also counted with the participation of international speakers to share best practices from previous Widening funded projects, namely:
– Prof. Dusan Galusek – FUNGLASS project coordinator;
– Prof. Chahnez Charfi Triki – SEED project coordinator.

Furthermore, the training addressed the evaluator’s vision with a dedicated presentation from Ms Francisca Gómez Fernández, an EU Expert Consultant with long-standing experience in reviewing EU proposals and Widening applications. Finally, at the end of the day, the participants discussed the opportunities of Hop On and ERA-Chair funding.

After the sessions, representatives of Canary Islands’ R&I centres and universities have had the chance to arrange b2b meetings with the NCP representative to consult specific doubts and questions on the Widening programme.
