The last call for proposals of the Science with and for Society (SwafS) programme will open on 10 December 2019. To facilitate matchmaking and partnership building, network organises two brokerage events for potential project proposers.

The first brokerage event will be organised in Warsaw/Poland on 15 October 2019. It will be linked to the knowledge day which will take place the day before (14 October 2019).

The knowledge day on day 1 will highlight all topics covered within the Horizon 2020 SwafS call for proposals and will target SwafS applicants as well as SwafS stakeholders (including NCPs). It will serve as an information day including training elements on most useful topics important for SwafS applicants.

The brokerage event on day 2 provides a matchmaking session which will give participants the opportunity to join pre-arranged meetings with other participants in order to identify possible collaborators to facilitate the setup of SwafS project consortia.
