The European GNSS Agency (GSA) and the Horizon 2020 Space NCP Network (COSMOS2020plus) are jointly organizing the Horizon 2020 Space Information Day and Brokerage Event at the GSA’s headquarters in Prague, Czech Republic, on September 12-13.
The aim of the event is to present funding opportunities in Horizon 2020 Space and to provide first-hand information on the last Horizon 2020 Space Calls, with a special focus on the EGNSS/GALILEO Call. Since development of the next EU Framework Programme—Horizon Europe—is already underway, some early information on the new Framework Programme will be also provided.
Targeting public authorities, universities and research institutes, companies and other organizations, the Information Day will provide a “deep dive” on the 5th Horizon 2020 EGNSS downstream applications Call, and will also cover the EGNSS upstream—including mission, services, technology and infrastructure. What’s more, participants in the workshop will be able to talk with the authors of the Space Work Programme 2020 and get advice on Horizon 2020 proposal writing.

Participants in the Information Day will have a unique opportunity to learn about a brand new topic on EGNSS applications for public authorities: the Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) Workshop will examine the added value of PCP and also inform about the rules for participation and the applicable conditions.
In addition to learning about space opportunities in the last Horizon 2020 call, participants will be able to network and meet potential partners for the final Horizon 2020 Space Calls and receive an overview of the Galileo program and its state of play.
