Tuesday, 24 November 2015, 9 am – 4 pm Brussels, Bibliothèque Solvay

Please save the date for the first Latin American (LA) Information Day, a joint activity of the so
called ‘BILAT’ projects which promote European cooperation with: Argentina - ABEST III, Brazil -
B.BICE+, Chile - CEST+I and Mexico - EU-MEX INNOVA, funded by the European Union under FP7.
Counting also on the participation of Panamá and ERANet LAC the aim is to enhance EU-Latin American
Science and Innovation cooperation.

Latin America is one of the emerging regions in technology, innovation and R&D expenditures. Many
European researchers and institutions have developed strong research links with LA researchers and
their institutions. However, some opportunities within LA federal funding programs are not well-
known in Europe, and European researchers and research managers may not be familiar with the
specific application processes & grants management procedures required by LA federal research
funding agencies. Therefore this workshop will:

  • Promote awareness of LA federal research funding opportunities for European researchers with specific focus on Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Panamá
  • Strengthen European institutions’ expertise in applying for and managing LA research funds
  • Provide case studies of research collaboration between LA and European institutions
  • Grant firsthand information on the 2. ERANet-LAC Joint Call to be launched in December 2015

We are happy to welcome the following experts:

Mónica Silenzi – MINCyT, Argentina
N.N. – CNPq, Brazil
Lotte Bak Sørensen – CONICyT, Chile Jessica Urueta - CONACyT, Mexico Claudia Guerrero – SENACyT,
Panamá Sophie von Knebel – ERANet LAC

The workshop addresses the whole European research community (funding agencies, researchers &
research managers, administrators). Registration for the workshop will be free of charge.
