EU-Kompakt I & II
The "EU Kompakt II" event in Brussels presupposes knowledge and experience in the field of EU research and innovation funding, provides in-depth information on European research policy, content-related contexts and strategic aspects and serves as an exchange platform with relevant Brussels stakeholders.
The aim of the "EU Kompakt II" seminar is the advanced practice-oriented teaching of content-related contexts, overarching structures and processes relevant to the Framework Programme. Participants will be introduced to important players and communication channels in Brussels and will gain knowledge on how to deal with the European Commission over the entire cycle of European research funding. Furthermore, structures and procedures of initiatives outsourced from the Commission (e.g. public-private partnerships, executive agencies, etc.) will be addressed, and other stakeholders relevant to the Framework Programme will be presented. The basis for the information transfer and discussions is always the concrete application of this knowledge in everyday work.
"EU-Kompakt II" usually takes place twice a year (spring and autumn) at the KoWi Brussels Office.
As the last calls of the current research Framework Programme have already been published and preparations for the successor programme Horizon Europe have not yet been completed, there will be no "EU-Kompakt II" in 2020.
Prerequisite for participation is knowledge and experience in the field of EU research and innovation funding. Programme content and advisors are selected on an up-to-date basis and are oriented towards current developments in Brussels.

Note: If you wish to participate in the two seminars "EU-Kompakt I" and "EU-Kompakt II", we generally advise you to plan a time gap (for example one year) between them. This gives the opportunity to integrate what has been learned in the beginners' seminar into everyday activities and to put it into practice before the topics of the second seminar are introduced.
