NetWorld2020 General Assembly, 15 November 2018, Brussels – Registration is open
The NetWorld2020 General Assembly will take place in Brussels on 15 November 2018. All members are cordially invited. Also non-members are welcome to attend but will not enjoy voting rights.
This year’s General Assembly will have two topics in focus:
The first topic is to take a look on research areas in the timeframe 2021-2027 which is beyond Horizon 2020. Preparations for the next EU Framework Programme FP9 which will be called Horizon Europe have been advanced in the past 1-2 years and there are now proposals for topics and structures for implementation. In Networld2020 a whitepaper on research directions for 2021-27 has been prepared which was available for public consultation with NetWorld2020 members, describing a number of topics that need further research beyond 2020. The NetWorld2020 GA will be a forum to discuss potential research topics between NetWorld2020 members, experts from the Expert Group and representative from EC.
Secondly, the GA will also be a stage to discuss the progress of 5G, with a particular focus on SME contribution to 5G research and to reaching verticals sectors for exploiting 5G systems. Two panels are on the agenda with short presentations and time for lively discussions.
At this GA NetWorld2020 members will also elect the new Steering Board for the period 2019-20.

If a member is unable to attend the GA it is nevertheless possible to vote. The member unable to attend can simply fill a Proxy form and gives it to a trusted member (of the same stakeholder group) that will attend the GA. Each member can do proxy voting for max. 10 non-attending members.
To allow fast handing out of ballots for proxy voters at the GA and to avoid long queues, all proxy forms have to be sent to the election organiser (Eurescom, email@example.com) in advance, latest by 9 November 2018 (pdf scan of the duly filled and signed proxy form).
The attending member will get a separate ballot at check-in at the GA that he/she will fill for the non-attending member, as instructed by the non-attending member. Please note, proxy- and non-attending member must be in the same stakeholder group (i.e. RESEARCH). Download Proxy Form
Finally to mention, the NetWorld2020 GA will of course again be an excellent opportunity for networking with other members, members of the Steering Board and representatives from EC.
