RURALITIES Showcased at EU Funding Opportunities Event in Tunisia

On July 3, 2024, Gabor Mester, the RURALITIES project coordinator, participated in the event titled “EU Funding Opportunities under Horizon Europe: Focus on Widening Calls.” This event took place in Tunisia and was organized by the Unit for the Management of the European Research and Innovation Framework Programme “Horizon Europe” under the Tunisian Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. At this event, RURALITIES project was showcased as a best practice example for Pillar 2 calls from Associated Countries, North Africa, and Outermost Regions.

The event gathered experts to achieve several key objectives:

  • Showcase Funding Opportunities: Present various funding opportunities available under Horizon Europe.
  • Raise Awareness: Increase understanding of “Widening” calls within Horizon Europe.
  • Strengthen Synergies: Enhance cooperation between Horizon EU-WIDERA and other European networks.
  • Share Insights: Provide valuable insights into the proposal writing process for Pillar II actions.


We extend our heartfelt thanks to the NCP_WIDERA.NET project team for organizing this event. Their efforts have significantly contributed to raising awareness and promoting synergies across different regions and networks.
