(In-person, onsite event)

Biodiversity is fundamental to healthy ecosystems and life on our planet. However, biodiversity is being lost at an unprecedented rate, threatening our global economic and human wellbeing. Circular economy can help us to halt and reverse biodiversity loss and support conservation efforts to bend the curve towards a nature-positive future. The event will focus on the research and innovation communities of Cyprus, Greece, Lithuania, Poland, Slovenia and Hungary, as well as other relevant European stakeholders in order to display their strengths and ideas for future consortia in Horizon Europe calls, with a particular focus on biodiversity and circular economy (Cluster 6).

Researchers, businesses, and other organisations are invited to pitch their project ideas or activities, related to the Horizon Europe Cluster 6 calls. Please see the calls for proposals for the Cluster 6 on biodiversity and circular economy HERE.

You can either register as an attendee (you will have the opportunity to listen to the pitches) or as a pitch presenter (to present a 5-minute pitch of your ideas and activities). We encourage you to have only 1 pitch presentation per institution. As there is a limited number of pitch presentations, the organisers reserve the right to select presenters. Presenters will receive more detailed information about the expected structure and content of their pitches after their registration.

The deadline for registration and for the submission of pitch presentations is Friday, 26 May 2023.

The detailed programme is available below. Because of limited space available, we urge you to register ASAP.
