Session 3.4 – Co-programming partnerships

31 October 2018, 11:00-12:00, room STRAUSS 3


The Commission proposal for the Horizon Europe Framework Programme sets out in Article 8 the forms of European Partnership envisaged. In this context, the session will focus on how co-programming partnerships could interact more with Member States when developing their roadmaps/programmes. Interaction could, for example, imply co-funding or involvement of Ministries/funding agencies in the development of future roadmaps.
