What is it?
The funding support service is designed to help SMEs understand, and fully appreciate, the benefits of applying for European or national R&D funding to develop and support their business growth potential.
How it works…
We are able to offer up to 3-days of dedicated support to SMEs seeking to participate in European or national R&D or innovation-led projects. This support is free to all SMEs in the East of England (EEDA region) and we will…
Share knowledge and contacts to ensure we maximise opportunities;
Provide guidance and mentoring to strengthen proposals;
Encourage participation in national and European R&D projects;
Help to foster a climate of ‘R&D & innovation’ in SMEs;
Run ‘Information Days’ to bring ‘players’ together and to share news of
forthcoming grant funding opportunities as programmes evolve;
Link with regional initiatives such as the Enterprise Europe Network or
‘Understanding Finance for Business’;
Remain independent and impartial at all times.
For free, and impartial, support please contact our ‘EU and Innovation Funding Support Helpline’ on 01355 272 345.
All discussions regarding potential funding opportunities are carried out in strictest confidence.
Alternatively, you can contact the team by e-mail at [email protected] for further details on the support available.
