Through our membership of the European Regions Research and Innovation Network (ERRIN) London Higher Europe is supporting the 6th annual EU Design Days, a three day event which will bring together specialists from the fields of education and research, design and design management, policymaking and politics to inspire change at a city and regional level and set a new agenda going forward.
This panel discussion brings together policy, research and practice in E-health with a particular focus on understanding the current state of the art in research and how research interacts with the policy landscape.

Although Horizon 2020 is by far the largest research and innovation programme that the European Union runs, there are a whole host of alternative sources of funding. In general these programmesare down-stream, close to market or aim to implement research, which in itself offers opportunities to higher education institutions. Only open to LHE members.

University Research Administrators - Developing your EU funding skills: institutions, lobbying, funding and networks
As domestic research budgets continue to become more concentrated it is becoming increasingly important for UK universities to look to EU sources of funding. The researchers and research administrators of the future will need to be adept in working the levers of EU funding and, indeed, funding policy. This two-day mission for LHE members to Brussels is targeted at research administrators and support staff with little prior experience of working in an EU context.
