HWB Pre-call workshop on Activities 2015, 20 February

Boosting the quality of everyday life by accelerating ICT innovation


Action Line Health & Wellbeing: pre-call workshop on activities 2015

To support the expected launch of the EIT ICT Labs Call 2015 mid-March, the action line Health & Wellbeing organises a pre-call workshop to explore and match ideas and partners for HWB activities 2015. The pe-call workshop will take place on Thursday 20 February in the Co-location Centre Eindhoven from 9.30 hrs - 17.30 hrs.

The aim of the workshop is to distil input and convert the goals as has been set in the Strategic Innovation Agenda (SIA) into well defined, feasible ideas that of course fit the SIA. Therefore the action line HWB invites proposers to meet and match activities leading to a balanced quantity of project proposals for the 2015-2016 timeframe. 

An important under layer for the Call 2015 leading to the Business Plan 2015 is the Strategic Research Agenda (SIA) that has a timeframe of 3 years. The SIA will be distributed via this webpage as soon as possible. To increase the chance of success one must realise that the SIA is a leading principle in making plans for 2015. So check this page at a regular basis.
