The Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm (KTH) will host the next Unite! Dialogue under the title New Horizons, which will take place in two parts: first in March (online event) and in June (face-to-face event). The aim was to meet in person in Stockholm in March, but the often rapid and abrupt changes the pandemic has brought, means that adjustments had to be made. The 5th Dialogue will therefore be split into two parts (March and June). This will allow for discussions to continue and decisions to be made in a timely manner whilst ensuring the safety and well-being of everyone involved.
8th – 10th March: Online event
Part one is a digital event that will take place on the 8th – 10th March. This event will include sessions for Unite!’s Governing Platform, Unite!’s Academic Forum, H2020 Plenary session and H2020 General Assembly meeting.
Everyone in Graz University of Technology is welcome to attend both the Unite! Dialogue Plenary Session on the 9th March 10:00–12:00 and the H2020 Plenary Session on the 10th March 09:00–11:30 (CET). Both sessions will focus on current developments of Unite! and will be broadcasted online via Zoom, you can already register for both Unite! open sessions.
13th–15th June: On-site event
Part two will be an on-site Unite! Summer Community event in Stockholm on the 13th–15th June focused on giving the E+ Task Forces and H2020 Work Packages a chance to meet and discuss the latest developments. A preliminary programme and registration information will be available after the March event.
The Unite! Dialogues
