Cena Iberica: Towards Horizon 2020, 1st Meeting SRUK and PARSUK

On the 27th of April, PARSUK and SRUK held their first joint meeting named “Cena Ibérica – Towards Horizon 2020”. The event took place in Bath and consisted in a seminar about funding for scientific research from the European Union, followed by a walking tour and dinner. With the Marie Curie fellowships being one of the most desirable fellowships for researchers in Europe and the budget for the new European framework programme for science and innovation, the Horizon 2020, being negotiated at that moment, this event served as orientations for attendants about how to get funding from the EU. Speakers included Dr. Pedro Estrela, Senior Lecturer at the University of Bath, Dr. Diego Gomez-Nicola, post-doc researcher at the University of Southampton and Dr. Caroline Ang, European research development manager, who shared their experience and knowledge about the Marie Curie Actions. After the seminar, there was a walking tour of Bath and a social dinner at the Portuguese restaurant Portvcale.
