Short survey: Ever heard of H2020?


The Dragon Star Plus Project's goal is to develop a long term bilateral cooperation strategy in Research and Innovation between Europe and China, by providing support services to the European and Chinese Research Community, as well as offering a flexible platform to facilitate the policy discussions between both regions.  

To achieve this objective, Dragon Star Plus will strive to foster participation of European researchers in Chinese Research Programs and, in turn, create a positive effect on the Chinese participation in H2020.

But what is Horizon 2020 exactly?

If you have already heard about H2020, please take this short survey and share your experience with us. If not, don’t miss this possibility to get to know about H2020 and start to take  advantages from the program and its funding system. Your valuable feedback will help us improve EU-China bilateral cooperation opportunities!
