SiS.net organises annually a brokerage event for Science with and for Society, in cooperation with the European Commission. The brokerage event focused on the 2020 work programme will take place 14-15 October 2019 in the Copernicus Science Centre in Warsaw, Poland.

The main objective of the Science with and for Society Brokerage Event is to provide first-hand information about the Horizon 2020 Science with and for Society calls and to bring all stakeholders together (universities, research institutions, civil society organisations, SMEs, public bodies, Science Centres etc.), in order to meet potential coordinators and partners in a fruitful networking environment.

The last call for proposals in SwafS programme will open on 10 December 2019. In order to provide networking opportunities for potential applicants, SiS.net, the NCP network for Science with and for Society of Horizon 2020, invites all stakeholders to a brokerage event in Warsaw on 15 October 2019.

The knowledge day will highlight all topics covered within the Horizon 2020 SwafS call for proposals and will target the SwafS NCPs as well as the SwafS stakeholders. It will serve as information day including training elements on most useful topics important for SwafS applicants.

The brokerage / matchmaking event will give participants the opportunity to join pre-arranged meetings with other participants in order to identify possible collaborators and to facilitate the setup of Horizon 2020 project consortia.Participation in a brokerage event is an excellent opportunity to meet potential partners and to start building your consortium!
