The present article outlines the importance of clustering in Horizon Europe and describes potential clustering activities Privanova implements in projects where we take part. Privanova’s dissemination partner: CrowdhelixWhen project outcomes are transformed into concrete benefits for society, they maximise the scientific, social, economic, technological and policy value of the project and, in turn, further contribute to making Europe a global reference in Research and Innovation. To achieve this transformation, Privanova’s dissemination activities rely on the successful planning and careful delivery to relevant stakeholders. Ethics Appraisal Process: Main Reference DocumentsPrivanova publishes an eBook referencing all the relevant legal documents on which the Ethics Appraisal Process relies.

Ethics Appraisal Process in Horizon Europe: Key ChangesThe Horizon Europe introduced several important changes concerning the way the Ethics Appraisal Process is organised for EU-funded research projects. Beyond ensuring ongoing ethics compliance, these changes reflect both the evolution in terms of procedures as well as a reflection of the technological developments the European Commission consider the most important. DigiCare4You – KickOff MeetingPrivanova takes part in the DigiCare4You project KickOff meeting which marks the official start of this interdisciplinary, EU-funded research project.

IBM: Artificial Intelligence and Research ProjectsWe discuss Artificial Intelligence, its importance and potential ethical impacts across several H2020 projects on which we collaborate with Julia Pshenichnaya – Cognitive Process Automation Practice lead, IBM France. Conditional Clearance and Ethics RequirementsThe most common outcome of the H2020 Proposal Ethics Screening is the Conditional clearance – the clearance is subject to conditions that must be included as ‘ethics requirements’. This white paper presents all of the potential ethics requirements your proposal might receive following the Ethics Screening. CC-DRIVER Kickoff MeetingThe project was formally launched at a virtual kick-off meeting on 6-7 May 2020, which was attended by more than 30 representatives from partner organisations, including law enforcement agencies (LEAs), research centres, universities, industry and civil society from across Europe as well as a representative from the European Commission.
