On the past 18th April, MEC CUBIST stepped into La Estanzuela, an experimental institution of the National Institute of Agricultural Research (INIA) in the department of Colonia, in order to make known the tools of the H2020 program.
After regional director Darío Hirigoyen welcomed the audience and participants via video conference from the School of Veterinary, Claudia Romano, the Coordinator of MEC CUBIST, carried out a general presentation of the program. She emphasized the opportunities which are created by the scheme of calls “Marie Sklodowska-Curie” as well as the characteristics of the collaborative calls made in the period 2018-2020 in the context of the Social challenges.
Florencia Acosta, the MEC CUBIST Project officer, specified the characteristics of the consortium calls, showed the websites where more information on the calls is provided, gave tips on how to find associates as well as information on how to elaborate a proposal and its budget.
Taking into consideration the participating audience´s profile, the call that had been launched in the context of the Social Aim 2 “Food safety, sustainable agriculture, maritime investigation and bioeconomy” was presented in detail. For this, support was provided by Ivonne Naguila Calleri, NCP of the Social Aim 6, who developed, together with MEC Cubist, a summarizing document of the call for its three topics: FOOD SAFETY / RISING SEA LEVELS / RURAL RENAISSANCE.
Finally, the MEC CUBIST team highlighted the opportunity these calls entail by specifically expressing the obligation of including countries from Latin America and the Caribbean (CELAC) in the postulations, and provided the participants with a list of those.
