As the first European calls for Horizon 2020 are being launched, the French Embassies in the Nordic Countries will organize a meeting in Paris on April 8–9. The objective of this seminar is to offer a platform for Nordic and French researchers to meet and discuss possible cooperation in the perspective of the future H2020 calls.

Two research areas have been chosen for this first-of-a-kind event, on which the scientific delegation could discuss:

  • Mineral Raw Materials: 3D geology, recycling, societal and environmental impact, green mining exploitation, material flow analysis
  • Food Safety and Security: ground quality, parasite, risk evolution, family-sized farming

This event will be an asset to meet your counterpart in France, whether you are an industrial or a researcher, from private or public sector.
