Description

Horizon 2020 Advanced Manufacturing and Materials Briefing

– An introduction to the 2018/19 work programme


Despite Brexit, EU funding and investment for innovation is still available and remains a priority at local, national and EU levels for the foreseeable future. Businesses can apply directly to a number of programmes.

Horizon 2020 is the EU’s largest research and innovation funding programme, with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020) and the biggest single opportunity for UK businesses to access European funding.

The next round of funding calls (2018-2020) Advanced Manufacturing and Materials will be open for applications very soon. If your organisation is interested in submitting then don’t miss attending this key information session to find out more.

This event will also provide an essential update on the changes to the SME Instrument taking effect from January 2018. If you are an innovative SME with global ambition then join us to hear how you could apply for funding from €50,000 to €2.5m to fast track your growth.

Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) can provide valuable support throughout the application process. With over 600 partner offices EEN is also perfectly situated to help find partners and build your consortium. Advisers will be on hand at the event to discuss your project needs.
