The Canada-Europe Partnership Forum will take place on Sunday, November 3, 2024, the day before the CBIE2024 Annual Conference as a kick-off activity for the 3-day conference. The forum will build on Canada’s new associated membership to the Horizon Europe Program (Pillar II) – the world’s largest research and innovation funding program, with a funding envelope of close to EUR 100 billion (CND $140 billion) under the Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-2027. Canada’s association to Pillar II represents a recognition of Canada by its European counterparts as a trusted, reliable partner and strong innovator with good success rates.

The full-day event will include timely concurrent sessions, thought-provoking panel discussions, and meaningful networking opportunities. Specifically, the forum will create a unique opportunity for CBIE members to:

  • Deepen Canadian-European educational partnership activities, such as joint programming, research, capacity-building training, and mobility;
  • Identify new potential European partners and be identified by potential European partners;
  • Learn of tools and resources available to Canadians within the framework of Horizon Europe; and
  • Gain knowledge on how to elevate their research and innovation through bilateral and multilateral partnerships.
