H2020 BRIEFING 25 OCTOBER 2018
LONDON CALLING - We attended this event looking for potential partners for the SeaVax project. We made 17 contacts, 5 of which have potential for future cooperation and 1 for earth observation that is needed for plastic spotting.
Horizon 2020 Information & Brokerage Event: Description
Innovate UK and the Knowledge Transfer Network are hosting the Horizon 2020 Robotics event which is aimed at supporting collaboration across the UK and Europe.
will be promoting funding opportunities available for robotics through Horizon 2020, the EUs largest research and innovation funding programme.
* pointers and tips on achieving success in Horizon 2020
* valuable insights on topics around the areas to be funded by the EU in 2019
* an overview of the support available locally and nationally to develop applications
* brokerage sessions throughout the day
* consortium building and proposal development on specific call topics
Find out more about the development of the Horizon 2020 work programme
* Be inspired by success stories.
* Gather information about the proposal evaluation and guidance on dos and donts for proposal preparation.
* Brokerage Activities Pitch your project idea on stage and promote your profile on our networking walls.
* Consortia Building & Proposal Development Workshop Team up with potential collaborators and brainstorm proposal ideas for the forthcoming calls topics covered by the event.
SUMMARY OF CALLS
Robotics in Application Areas
1. Research and Innovation Actions (RIAs)
2. Innovation Actions (Its) and
Robotics Competitions (as a CSA).
SeaVax is a zero carbon vessel falling to be considered under transport, that is aimed at Sustainability Development Goal SDG2 to ensure Zero Hunger, but where research and innovation is needed in the areas of robotics and autonomy to control water filtration equipment and operate the low carbon hull featuring solar panels and wind turbines as the propulsive energy source.
SEAVAX - Proof of concept model at 1/20th scale in our robot laboratory, waiting for more outings in a test tank where experiments will continue into 2018 to define the best methods and most suitable machinery for filtering plastic waste from seawater. The results from this series of tests could be fed into a predictive application to further refine the concept to help development of the prototype vessel at quarter scale or even full size. Onboard autonomous robotics systems is the key to efficient running of machines like these.

The Knowledge Transfer Network is the UKs innovation network. They aim to bring together business, entrepreneurs, academics and funders to develop new products, processes and services.
By this means they might help you develop ideas, expertise and technologies, that have the potential to be world-beating products. Central to what they do is the initiation and building of collaborations designed to lever funding for new products, skirting around intellectual property rights that innovators relinquish in exchange for a percentage of funding.
