WEBINAR: Horizon 2020 Secure Societies: Information and Consortia Building

26 March 2020, 10:00 – 14:30 GMT


** You, like us, will be only too aware of the fast-developing situation with regards to the COVID-19 pandemic. The safety and wellbeing of our attendees and staff is our priority and, with this in mind, we have decided to move this event from a physical meeting to an online webinar. [Dates and times as above.]

We will work with you and all of our attendees and speakers to ensure that, despite not being face-to-face, we still give you as much opportunity to network and connect as possible. We welcome your feedback as to how the events are working online and how we can improve or increase their reach in these ever-changing circumstances.

Thank you for your understanding.**


The event is suitable for anyone with an interest in participating in European projects in the forthcoming 2020 Secure Societies related topics. Delegates from all European Member States are encouraged to attend the webinar.

You can access the official European Commission presentations and voice-over recordings about the background of the H2020 Secure Societies Work Programme, application rules and all 2020 call topics from the recent H2020 Secure Societies Info Day here. We would ask anyone who joins our webinar to prepare and look at the material in advance of our online event.

Please note: We will not repeat and go into the details on the individual call topics, but will go straight into a Question and Answer session, where you can pose any questions you may have on the 2020 call topics and the application process. You can submit your answers to us in advance via this form.
