The European Research Framework Programme Horizon 2020 offers many interesting funding & partnering opportunities for companies. One of the most attractive is the EIC Accelerator, which gives SMEs access to innovation grants with amounts up to 2’500’000 Euro and the possibility for facilitated access to investors via the blended finance option. It is no surprise, that this is a very popular and competitive instrument. In this training, experts for European funding of companies share their insights and experiences for successful proposals in lectures, interactive panels and exercises. Target audience is key persons from SMEs with a clear intention to submit a proposal in 2020. Basic familiarity with Horizon 2020 is recommended, such as the information found elsewhere on the Euresearch Website.
