The goal of Horisont Vest is to strengthen participation in Horizon 2020 within priority industry clusters in the western countries of Hordaland and Rogaland. The project works closely with stakeholders in six thematic areas: energy, food, maritime, welfare technology, media and tunnel safety, and cooperates with cluster management, regional support, and the Research Council’s National contact points at specialist level. Key activities are seminars for presenting H2020 opportunities, helpdesk, identification of topics with relevance for the region’s stakeholders, and follow-up of selected application consortia emerging on regional priorities.
