The Horizon 2020 Energy Info Days will present the new funding opportunities offered by the Energy Work Programme 2018-2020. You can consult the Draft version here but remember it is not yet the official publication.

This year we have structured the content of the event in three days:


23 October 2017 

focuses in the funding priorities for renewables, decarbonising fossil fuels & cross-cutting issues.

Day 2

24 October 2017

presents Smart Cities & Communities in the morning and  Energy Systems in the afternoon.

Day 3

25 October 2017

covers Smart and Efficient Energy.

The event also offers different possibilities to network.

If you are you planning to apply for funding, meeting the right partners and building your consortia is a key part of the process.  We are therefore organising two brokerage events aiming at giving you opportunities to network and meet potential partners.  The thematic focus of the brokerage events will be the H2020 Energy Calls for Proposals 2018-2020. For more information on the upcoming calls, please click here.


Organisers aim to ensure participation of all individuals who wish to attend the event. Organisers will take into account an equal share between participants from different countries and different organisations.

You are kindly requested to limit participation to maximum two people per organisation. Please note that if you don’t collect your badge by 10:30 on the day of the conference your seat may be given to another participant.

Only one e-mail address per participant can be registered in the system.  None of the sessions or days are compulsory, you are free to choose the sessions you are interested in and design your own conference agenda.

How does the matchmaking works?

A matchmaking event is a quick and easy way to meet potential cooperation partners to judge a possible future collaboration. People meet and greet at high speed.  A few minutes are usually enough to build connections, then the bell rings and the next meeting starts.



During the registration you can indicate if and when you are available for bilateral meetings. This determines up to how many meetings you can manage later on.



Next you create your own profile. The better the quality of your profile the more and qualified meeting requests you can expect and the higher the chance that the meetings will have an impact.



Browse the other participants send meetings requests to those companies you would like to meet at the event. Meeting requests that are accepted are scheduled on fixed time-slots and tables prior to the event.



A few days prior to the event you will receive an email with your meetings schedule showing who you will meet, what time, and the table number where the meeting will take place.
