[Source: Research & Innovation] CAAST-Net Plus is working together with the EU Delegation in Nigeria on plans for a Horizon 2020 information session targeted at the research and innovation community in Nigeria, as well as a training workshop for Nigerian National Contact Points. Goals • To increase Nigerian researchers’ and NCPs’ awareness of funding opportunities under Horizon 2020. • To build the capacity of current or potential National Contact Points (NCPs) in creating a network for an exchange of best practices. Structure The information session and training for National Contact Points (NCPs) will be held over two days. On the first day, CAAST-Net Plus will provide an overview of the Horizon 2020 programme and how African researchers can participate. The second day is restricted to current (or potential) NCPs, and will provide participants with the tools needed to provide support to the science community in their country and their participation in Horizon 2020.
