EAST-HORIZON training in Georgia

From Thursday 11 September 2014 -  08:00am
To Friday 12 September 2014 - 05:00pm


International Center for Advancement of Research Technology and Innovation – ICARTI, as a partner of the EH was responsible for the organization of the first training workshop of the EAST HORIZON, which took place on the 11th and 12th of September 2014 at the premises of the Tbilisi State University (TSU).

Invitations were sent to 40 representatives of private and public sector, academia, EC NCPs in Georgia, Universities, Governmental and nongovernmental organizations, whereas a relevant invitation or interest was uploaded on TSU website. Out of the total invitees, 36 representatives chose to attend the training and received detail information on the H2020 program.

The Training Team, consisting of experienced trainers from PLANET S.A and European Experts from Athens Technology Center – ATC, chose to dedicate the first training day on the overall presentation of the program, namely its structure, its goal, its demands and specifications and to prepare participants for the steps to follow towards a successful proposal drafting. This was perceived as valuable session since it enabled participants to be easily introduced to the Horizon 2020 programme. Georgian participants showed great interest in the information shared and raised several interesting questions that created room for further discussions with the trainers.
The second day focused on participants’ ideas. The presentation of the ideas and the discussion around them was mostly anticipated by the participants, as they felt they received specific and solid information which met their personal needs, in order to proceed with their idea and proposal. On the other hand the trainers were able to locate the most difficult areas of the procedure applicants are facing.
