Posted on: 16/07/2019

Are you looking for collaboration opportunities or to find partners for your H2020 project in ICT or Circular Economy (especially plastics)?

Apply for up to £500 towards travel and accommodation costs to attend an international brokerage event. This is a competitive process. Your application will be assessed and a limited number of successful applicants will receive support.

To be eligible for support, you need to be an SME according to the EU definition (see definition here).

Innovate UK and Knowledge Transfer Network are offering UK-based R&D performing SMEs the opportunity to receive a contribution of up to £500 towards travel and accommodation costs to attend one of the following international brokerage events.

Applying for travel support does not guarantee you a space at one of these events. You need to sign up separately to attend, using the links below. Sign up as soon as possible as spaces are limited. (do not wait for the decision on the travel award).

1. ICT Proposers Day 2019: 19th and 20th September, Helsinki, Finland. Register here.

2. Climate Action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials: 16th and 17th September, Brussels, Belgium. Register here.


These events will include dedicated networking and brokerage activities to help participants identify collaboration opportunities and find suitable partners. It is therefore important that you are familiar with the participation rules for the Horizon 2020 programme. You also need to understand the priorities and themes of calls included within the scope of the event you wish to attend.

If successful in your application for travel and accommodation costs, you will receive support prior to the event to help you get the maximum benefit from attending. Please note successful applicants will need to adhere to KTN’s policy for reasonable travel expenses; a copy will be provided to successful applicants.
