Key Opportunities for Innovative SMEs Workshop

February 11, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

bannière brussels 1000x150

You are a R&D performing SME interested in the opportunities offered by European programs? 
You want to develop a R&DI project but the thematic calls do not match your idea and/or you would prefer to work in a small tailor-made consortium?
You are an innovative company willing to fuel its growth and expansion through a sounded business strategy for its innovative products or services? 

Innoviris, NCP Brussels and Enterprise Europe Brussels invite Brussels-based companies to learn more about 2 sets of opportunities to :

 

  •  Carry out R&DI activities with the support of European funding schemes (“bottom-up” Research and Innovation, i.e. calls for proposals not limited to specific fields or areas of work).
  •  Boost the business development of innovative products or services keeping the market perspective in strategy design.

Topics

European supporting schemes, particularly relevant for Brussels innovative SMEs in all sectors and themes.

Objectives

– Get an overview of supporting opportunities particularly relevant for innovative SMEs and for R&DI SMEs.
– Understand the ratio, the purposes and the targeted audience of each supporting scheme.
– Understand differences among EU funding programs for R&DI activities and choose the right one for your idea.
– Meet advisors who can help you further in stepping in the most suitable approach.

Target

Brussels-based small and medium enterprises with innovative project ideas or business plan.

This workshop is not targeted at consultants.
