Workshop - How to apply for EU Funding


Join us for an EU/EURAXESS-sponsored workshop that will explain how researchers in China can apply for support under Horizon 2020, the EU's Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.

The Workshop will feature representatives from EURAXESS, an EU-funded initiative supporting researchers' mobility and collaboration between Europe and China, raising awareness about the European Research Area.

Visitors from the EU Delegation in China and from the embassies of certain countries based in the EU will also participate.

The event should be of particular interest to researchers from PhD students upwards in most research fields (incl. social sciences and humanities), who wish to pursue research within Sino-European research networks, as well as for research-related professionals from universities, research institutions or funding agencies.
