Innovation Funding Opportunities Through The Horizon 2020 Programme

Tuesday 1 September 2015

Are you an innovative company with high growth ambitions in international markets? Could collaboration or innovation funding help you to build your business to its potential?

The European Commission’s €79 billion Horizon 2020 programme represents a strong opportunity for the innovators amongst Scotland’s construction industry to accelerate their growth on an international platform.  With a variety of feasibility, research and demonstration funding mechanisms for large companies, SMEs and academia, H2020 can offer a powerful addition to Scottish and UK innovation funding and equity capital.  And with more on the ground support than ever before for application development, European funding is worth exploring.

Construction Scotland Innovation Centre (CSIC), in conjunction with Scottish Enterprise, Highlands & Islands Enterprise, Scotland Europa and the Enterprise Europe Network, are hosting an information and discussion session on Tuesday 15 September in Stirling to encourage you to explore the opportunities that European funding offers. Presentations on the programmes and how they work, talks from companies who have already benefited from the funding together with round table discussions and one-to-one sessions with those who can support you here in Scotland, ensure you will be fully briefed on the opportunity.

Who Should Attend?

These workshops are open to all interested Scottish Stakeholders including:
• Industry (large companies, established SMEs with foresight and working or aspiring to work internationally)
• Business Development Managers from Universities and Research & Technology organisations
• Public sector bodies and stakeholders
