The Centre for Global Eco-Innovation, the Liverpool Innovation Park and the North West Fund are hosting a FREE event to assist companies to develop their businesses and receive expert assistance in accessing European funding.
'Horizon 2020 - The Framework Programme for Research and Innovation' will succeed Framework Programme 7 as the main financial instrument supporting European research and development. Running from 2014 to 2020 with a proposed £70.9 billion budget (a significant increase over FP7), the new programme will provide an unparalleled opportunity for European small and medium sized businesses for the development and commercialisation of innovative technologies and is intended to form a key part of the overall drive to support innovation and to create new growth and jobs across Europe.
The event will also offer the chance to engage with experts and gain some first-hand knowledge about European funding from a range of organisations. The presentations will provide information about the benefits of accessing European funding and the variety of funding streams available to small and medium sized enterprises.
