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.


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


– 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.


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

This workshop is not targeted at consultants.
