Tashkent hosted an information day “Horizon – framework of the European Union for scientific research and innovation”.

The event was initiated by the Committee on coordination and development of scientific and technology under the Cabinet of Ministers of Uzbekistan and Indian-Uzbek Center for supporting scientific-technologic cooperation, the portal of the committee said.

Over 50 scientists and research institutes and organizations of Uzbekistan, European partners, which represented Horizon-2020 programme, participated at the event, Jahon news agency reported.

During the event, the structure of Horizon-2020 programme, terms of participation and search of partners, financial issues were presented. The sides also considered issues between scholars of Uzbekistan and the EU.

Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020) – in addition to the private investment that this money will attract. It promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market.

Horizon 2020 is open to everyone, with a simple structure that reduces red tape and time so participants can focus on what is really important. This approach makes sure new projects get off the ground quickly – and achieve results faster.

The EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation will be complemented by further measures to complete and further develop the European Research Area. These measures will aim at breaking down barriers to create a genuine single market for knowledge, research and innovation.
