Your DUT journey Starts at the Kick-off Event!

We invite you to two dynamic days. The program strives for a high level of interaction, mixing presentations with interaction in group discussions and workshops. The DUT team will give important information on formal requirements and programme activities in the coming three years and respond to questions from the projects.

The kick-off event aims to:

    • Introduce project partners to the DUT Partnership and activities
    • Inform about program requirements and planned support activities
    • Provide opportunity for projects to share information about their projects, engage in strategic discussions and find areas for cooperation during the projects’ timeline
    • Provide coaching and training

Parts of the kick-off event will be hybrid, with all sessions available onsite and some of them online. We expect 2-3 representatives from each project to attend the kick-off event onsite in Brussels. We ask all project coordinators to inform your partners about this event and help us ensure a good balance between researchers and partners outside academia at the event. Additional project partners are welcome to attend online.

Make sure to make your hotel reservations well in advance since there will be many events in Brussels related to the EU presidency.
