Accessing European Research & Innovation Funding – UK Roadshow of Events

The Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) in partnership with Innovate UK invites you to participate in a series of “Accessing European Research & Innovation Funding” events to understand how European funding can help take your innovation to the next level.

The events are taking place right across the country this summer and will focus on the Horizon 2020 SME Instrument and Eurostars. The aim here is to raise awareness of unique opportunities offered through these programmes and to provide practical steps and guidance in project design and proposal writing. There will also be tailored advice and one-to-one support offered to those businesses already familiar with the SME Instrument and with proposals in development.

Registration is FREE of CHARGE and is open to SMEs looking to develop and launch disruptive products in an international context.

What’s in it for your business?
