EAST-HORIZON aims to assist ICT R&D policy dialogue between Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECA) partner countries and the European Commission, paving the path for EU-EECA successful strategic partnerships.
EAST-HORIZON will inspire ideas and influence policies which will lead to the best possible benefits for both sides and in parallel will support organisations from both sides to prepare successful proposals for joint projects in collaborative ICT R&D, within the Horizon 2020 and in national EU/EECA ICT R&D programmes.
The specific objectives of the EAST-HORIZON project are to:
1. Support the Dialogue between EU and EECA countriesat all levels. To this end, EAST HORIZON will mobilize the most influential and knowledgeable people and Institutions and will provide the necessary tools for an efficient continuous collaboration.
2. Raise awareness among EECA organizations about H2020 through focused events which will provide a deep insight into H2020 challenges and priorities, Information Society (IS) Policy Co-operation activities, and how this fits into the Digital Agenda for Europe.
3. Adopt a holistic approach towards ICT R&D. This will bring together ICT research institutions, Information Technology Industrial companies and key ICT Users in each country, to maximize impact in ICT research collaboration and foster the wider and more holistic promotion of innovation.
4. Create permanent structures and mechanisms, sustainable after the end of the project. EAST-HORIZON will establish a permanent communication and collaboration platform, an environment where all ICT Research players can meet and work together to raise ideas for joint Research projects.
