An Info Day, focusing on the actions of FET Flagships, part of the ‘Future and Emerging Technologies’(FET) programme Horizon 2020, is being organized by the National Documentation Centre (EKT), National Contact Point for the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme, the General Secretariat for Research and Technology and the European Commission ( Directorate General for Communication Networks, Content & Technologies).

The ‘Future and Emerging Technologies’ (FET) programme supports new cutting-edge technologies by strengthening the competitiveness and development of Europe and creating new highly-skilled jobs.

The FET programme comprises three complementary actions:

‘FET Open’: supporting ideas for radically new future technologies still at the basic stage and employing few researchers

‘FET Proactive’: supporting emerging technologies in order to create a critical mass of European researchers in promising exploratory research

‘FET Flagships’: supporting initiatives through which hundreds of European researchers can join forces to resolve ambitious scientific and technological challenges such as understanding the human brain or the development of new materials like graphene.
