The RI-LINKS2UA eJournal informs you on a regular basis about the project's activities, upcoming events and recent developments on the EU-Ukraine cooperation in Science, Technology and Innovation. The present 7th edition is at the same time the next to the last, as the project ends in February 2019. At the end of January next year a final edition will be published, highlighting the achievements over the past three years and the RI-LINKS2UA final event in Brussels (exact date TBC).

Regarding our own activities over the last period, we have successfully organised a Horizon 2020 national info day in Kharkiv (November), a Horizon 2020 proposal writing training in Kyiv (October), and an online webinar on Horizon 2020 research infrastructures (October). Stay tuned for a webinar on the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions in H2020 on December 4 and for a training on the H2020 SME instrument on December 5-6! More information about both upcoming events you can find under “Upcoming events”.

A particular emphasis in this eJournal is placed on our currently open call for Horizon 2020 project preparation grants. It is already our 4th call for proposal and we are strongly encouraging you to apply for it. If you are intending to submit to an open H2020 call, this grant is able to finance your project preparatory meetings with international partners. But be quick, deadline is already on November 30! Find all details under “Open calls”.

By the way: The EU and the Eastern Partnership countries have reviewed the progress made under the “20 deliverables for 2020” in Octoer in Luxembourg. If you are interested in the bigger political picture and the Eastern Partnership policy as such, the 20 deliverables for 2020 are certainly a must-read!

As usual, some important news from the research and innovation sector in the EU and beyond and our recommended reads have been compiled for you as well.

We wish you a pleasant read and a festive holiday season!
