The UKRO Conference 2018 will include a number of expert speakers, predominantly from the European Commission and its Executive Agencies in Brussels, but also from the UK Research Councils. EU funding practitioners and evaluators will also help to inform and stimulate discussions with the participants. This year's event will offer a mix of R&I policy-oriented plenary sessions and panel discussions with high-profile speakers, as well as parallel and practical sessions. The transition from Horizon 2020 to the next EU Framework Programme, Continuity of the UK involvement in and post Horizon 2020, Impact in Horizon 2020 Projects, International Cooperation, and UN Sustainable Development Goals are among the topics that this flagship UKRO event will address.
UKRO Subscriber Representative Elections will also take place during the conference for which more information will be published in April. Furthermore, during the conference, participants will have the unique opportunity to visit the NOC facilities.
