Newly published guide helps SMEs understand EU funding tools

21. oktoober, 2014

A new publication has been released this month by the European Commission’s directorate general for enterprise and industry. The guide is intended for small and medium-sized companies developing technologies for use on both civil and military markets and presents opportunities offered by the Horizon 2020 and COSME programmes in between others.

It also shows how regional authorities can take similar approaches in the context of the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) and regional smart specialisation strategies. Regional funds, particularly the EU Cohesion Policy instruments, are a major source of financing that can complement other schemes and be used to finance EUREKA and Eurostars projects.
