PRESENTATION

NEST announces an information and brokerage event for the current NEST PATHFINDER activities on:

Reference document
Flyer

The purpose of the event is to give guidance to potential applicants in the preparation proposals for the Call (Submission deadline 14 April 2004) and in the search for potential partners for projects.

The event will provide a short introduction to NEST-PATHFINDER with practical details regarding the possible submission of proposals. This will be followed by individual "break-out" sessions for each of the three PATHFINDER initiatives.

The breakout sessions will commence by short presentation on the scope and objective of each initiative by the Commission. Participants will then have an opportunity to ask questions and to give brief (1-3 minutes) presentations on proposals under preparation or ideas that they may have. There will also be the opportunity to post informal posters.

Participants will have the opportunity to meet potential partners they may need to complete proposals that are in the process of preparation.

The event is a collaboration between the Commission NEST-Unit and the National Contact Points, in the context of the NEST-IDEA Specific Support Action.

PRACTICAL ASPECTS

Registration and summaries:

Participants are requested to register and/or to submit on-line a one-page summary of proposal ideas (including information on partnership): click here

Those not able to attend the meeting for practical reasons, but interested in the partner search aspect, are also requested to register, indicating their expertise and/or area of interest, as well as the relevant Pathfinder initiative.

A list of participants (and registered non participants) and copies of the one-page summaries will be made available on the day of the event.

Presentations:

Participants will be offered the possibility of making a brief (1 to 3 minutes) presentation on the 2nd of March to explain their ideas for proposals. Participants who wish to do should bring with them one or two overhead slides (max).

Posters:

Space will be made available for the placing of posters by proposers during the event.
