European opportunities to watch in 2018!

7 December 2017 - 11:13

Horizon 2020, the EU framework programme for Research and Innovation, will make more than 2 € Billion available for innovators in Health and Care willing to build collaborative projects to address more than 50 topics related to Health, demograhic change and well-being.

Three calls for proposals containing 30 topics for funding are already open, with deadlines coming soon:

Not interested by collaborative projects? Good news for companies: the SME instrument scheme will still offer grants in 2018-2020 with 479M€ in 2018.

The SME instrument in a nutshell :

  • 2 phases :
    • 50 €k for phase 1 – feasibility/strengthening of business model – 6 months max
    • 0,5 – 2 €M for phase 2 – scale-up / demonstration – between 6 months and 2 years, possible to team up with another SME
  • Bottom-up calls (no sector specific calls)

4 cut-off dates are planned for each of the phases in 2018:

Phase 1 Phase 2
14 February 2018 10 January 2018
2 May 2018 14 March 2018
5 September 2018 23 May 2018
7 November 2018 10 October 2018
