Short description

"Towards 2020: New Horizons for RTD and Innovation in the Western Balkan Region” – WBC-INCO.NET Final Conference and Brokerage Event" organised in Vienna on March 27/28 will provide an environment to build new partnerships and link todays' research and innovation with visions for the future. Organised for celebrating the end of activities by the project and to maximise its achievements throughout the years, the event will moreover foster the dissemination of high quality and targeted information on research achievements in and from the Western Balkan countries.


The Conference will bring together about 200 science policymakers, scientists and industry representatives from the Western Balkan and EU member states. The core focus will be primarily on Horizon 2020 and thus the collaboration in science between WBC and EU member states under the new Programme. Yet, the event will entail parallel sessions to discuss on results and lessons learned in previous collaboration as well as on-going/up-coming activities focusing innovation issues.

The WBC-INCO.NET final event aims to represent also a good chance to projects focused on the Western Balkan Region, or involving partners from the WBCs as well, wishing to promote their own work and results. Presenting one´s own project to the audience of the WBC-INCO.NET final conference and brokerage event would be indeed an excellent opportunity to create connections for project continuation as well as for new research activities.

Finally, a back-to-back BROKERAGE EVENT will be held in light of the Horizon 2020, intending to support the networking and cooperation between WBC and EU researchers in Horizon 2020 by focusing the following selected areas: Energy; ICT and Societies Research.
