Are you a researcher, company or institution working in the field of space? Would you like to know more about R&I-opportunities in Horizon Europe? And would you like to learn more about potential partners in France or in Denmark? Then join us online on June 4th, 9:30-12:00!

The French Institute in Denmark and the Danish Agency for Higher Education and Science are organizing this online event on Danish-French R&I-collaboration on space and the new funding opportunities offered by the Horizon Europe programme (with an emphasis on Pillar II, Cluster 4, Destination 5 – ”Strategic autonomy in developing, deploying and using global space-based infrastructures, services, applications and data” : total funding of 300M€ for 2021-2022).

The aim is to develop technologies ensuring Europe’s access to space and to strengthen our use of European satellite data – and at the same time create jobs and support the green transition!

You will have the opportunity to listen to experts presenting the key strengths of the Danish and French space-related industries and hear examples of current R&I-topics, including two case stories of successful projects in Horizon 2020.
