MEUCE BILAT USA 2.0 Workshop in Washington DC
Washington D.C. 7 August, 2013 - 1-4 pm
Immediately following the end of the NCURA 55th Annual Meeting (4-6 August 2013), BILAT 2.0 USA partners organized a “Practical Workshop” on recent developments concerning the European Framework Program, including tentative changes that will appear when Horizon2020 calls begin in 2014. The session – with over 60 participants – took place on Wednesday August 7, 2013 from 1 - 4 pm in the afternoon and was organized by Florida International University/Miami-Florida European Union Center of Excellence, NCURA and DLR. The participants in the workshop hailed from institutions across the country, including the Office of the President at the University of California, the University of Tennessee, Rutgers University and the Developmental Disabilities Institute at Wayne State University in Detroit, and work in positions as scholars and research administrators in scientific fields that ran the gambit, health to nanotechnology to disability advocacy. This diverse group participated in a lively and active discussion over the course of the three hours. The first segment of the workshop began with an informative talk by Errol Levy, Research and Innovation Counselor and Deputy Head of the Science, Technology and Education Section at the European Union Delegation to the United States of America, who provided an overview of European Framework Programs with an eye to Horizon 2020. Olaf Heilmayer shared a brief introduction to the BILAT 2.0 USA objectives and goals.
