    Dear Guests,

    I wanted to clarify that the lecture about Horizon2020 will focus only on the SME Instrument, which is a new tool of funding. Moreover, since this program is new, we will explain only the basic guidelines. The other lectures about the OCS and US funding will be much more informative.

    Best regards,
