European funding opportunities
With over €50bn available to support research and development over the next seven years, the European Commission Framework Programme 7 presents great opportunities for regional businesses and universities to access R&D funding.
For SMEs with smaller R&D budgets and resources, working together with academic or industrial partners to develop new technologies is often the best way of remaining competitive in today’s market. And accessing UK or EU funding to offset some of those costs can be of significant help in getting R&D projects off the ground.
Through a range of information and partnering services Enterprise Europe South EastUK can support regional organisations, particularly SMEs, to take advantage of the opportunities that EU funded collaborative R&D can bring. We can help you to understand what type of funding is available and how to access it, as well as assisting you in finding the partners you need to develop your project consortium.
