National reference group

Within each area of Horisont Europa there is a national reference group. The task of the reference group is to assist the program committee experts by collecting needs and opinions from the Swedish research community, business, the public sector and other relevant actors. The members of the reference group are often representatives of a certain sector, or some other broader grouping.

If you have any questions about the reference group or its work, you are welcome to contact the first listed program committee expert (for contact details see above).
