Event description

Description

The monthly Innovation Breakfast Networking (formerly NETPark Net breakfast) sessions are informal, informative opportunities designed to help Science, Engineering and Technology companies network with each other. These are sometimes held at NETPark, and other times on the location of hosting companies. Why not come and share coffee and bacon sandwiches with us?

A Beginner's Guide to Horizon 2020 and Innovate UK Funds

Are you confused by what funding is around for innovation?

Our next talk will be on Horizon 2020 and Innovate UK funds – the two main funds UK SMEs can access to help finance their ideas and projects. You will be given an overview of these funds, be guided on your eligibility and how to apply for them.

Different criteria apply for both funds but they broadly fund projects that:
• involve ground breaking research or new technologies
• improve research training and development, or research infrastructure
• create growth in sectors like advanced manufacturing, materials, biotechnology, information and communication technology, nanotechnology and space
• increase private investment
• respond to challenges like climate change, food security or healthcare

Omar Al-Janabi from Teesside University who are managing the Innovate Durham project will be speaking at the event. He will share their experience of writing the proposals and how Innovate Durham can support you with this.

For more information about the event, please contact Jenny Kwok (Wed-Fri) or Elaine Scott by email or telephone 03000 261261.
