In the frame of the Competitiveness & Innovation Programme ICT Policy Support Programme (CIP ICT PSP) and as a follow-up to the CIP Info Day (3 February 2012), the European Commission is organising a one-day information and networking workshop dedicated to Theme 3 of the CIP ICT PSP (ICT for Health, Ageing Well and Inclusion).
The workshop provides an excellent opportunity for prospective programme applicants to put their questions directly to the European Commission, present their ideas to stakeholders, meet potential partners and learn more about the state of the art and the broader policy context.
The event will take place on 17 February 2012 at the European Commission's Borschette Conference Centre in Brussels from 09:00 – 17:15.
The workshop has been designed to optimise the opportunities for participants by incorporating information sessions, parallel showcasing sessions, networking opportunities and one-to-one meetings. Check out the Agenda below and plan your day.
During the morning session the European Commission will present the seven objectives on ICT for Health, Ageing Well and Inclusion, putting them into the wider policy context and answering questions from interested participants who wish to submit projects for funding.
During the afternoon session there will be two parallel sessions for potential applicants to showcase their ideas to potential partners in a 5 minute slot using 3 presentation slides. Kindly note that due to time restrictions, the number of presentations will be strictly limited, therefore potential presenters should:
1. Register early (only those with a valid registration via ePractice will be eligible to present)
2. Prepare maximum 3 slides highlighting: who you are, your project idea - and which objective it relates to, who you are looking for
3. Submit slides by 10 February 2012 at the latest
Successful applications will receive a confirmation in advance of the event.
Note that: Presentations must clearly address one of the 7 Objectives falling under Theme 3 and be strictly limited to 3 slides and a maximum of 5 minutes. Presenters may be asked to modify presentations which do not entirely fulfil these criteria. Presentations which are submitted late or which include more than 3 slides will be rejected.
Registered participants also have the opportunity to sign up for a 10minute one-to-one appointment with a Commission representative to discuss their ideas. Appointments will be scheduled on a first-come first-served basis (see "how to register" below) and take place during the afternoon session. Applicants will be informed in advance of the time of their consultation.

As well as being able to meet potential partners face-to-face at the workshop itself, participants can also take part in some pre-workshop networking from 1 February 2012 via the IDEAL-IST website.
