SCALE will be present and presenting at the Cluster event for ongoing projects funded by HORIZON 2020 on Social Licence to Operate in Brussels on the 5th of June
This highly interactive event will illustrate the approaches taken and lessons learnt throughout thirty EU H2020 projects and key stakeholders, including a consideration of how European funding can be used to develop new schemes or improve existing ones. It is an opportunity to learn from good practices in Europe as well as from outside Europe. The workshop will be hosted by EASME.
The 3rd Progress Meeting of SCALE and its 1st Project Review is scheduled to take place on the 27th and 28th of June 2018 at the industrial plant of AOS in Hamburg, Germany.
