FLAG-ERA Project Seminars-2018


On the 21th and 22th of March 2018, the FLAG-ERA Consortium organizes a Kick off Seminar to mark the start of the 23 projects that were selected through the Joint Transnational Call (JTC) 2017. The researchers involved in the funded projects are invited to present their research plans to an audience of funders, fellow investigators and representatives of the FET Flagships and European Commission at the MINECO headquarters in Madrid.

On the 21th of March, the 17 projects in the Graphene topic will be presented, while the 6 projects in the field of the Human Brain Project will be presented, on the 22th of March in the morning.  The objectives of the seminar are to allow for networking among investigators, funders and FET Flagships, to showcase the research aims of the funded projects and to facilitate the integration of the JTC 2017 funded projects to the FET Flagship initiatives as Partnering Projects. All coordinators and representatives of their partners are invited to participate.

This Project Kick-off Seminar is organized in conjunction with the FLAG-ERA JTC 2016 Project Seminar, which will be held on the 22nd of March in the afternoon. Here, the 4 projects of the call will present their progress, in the context of the preparation of new Flagships, to an assembly composed of project and funding agencies representatives.
