This information session, organised by Vinnova, will provide insight about the Eurostars-2 funding and support programme for SMEs.
The workshop will be addressing all interested parties wanting to organise an international, market-driven, collaborative research project (mainly) in the area of Cleantech.
The workshop includes a full presentation of the program as well as an explanation of the criteria, procedures and related documents.
Plenary sessions are scheduled in the morning, pitching and matchmaking in the afternoon.
Swedish participants have so far been successful in the program and about 30% of all applicants received funding. Eurostars is part of Horizon 2020, the EU framework program for research and innovation.

The Eurostars Programme is a joint programme between EUREKA and the European Commission and the first European funding and support programme to be specifically dedicated to research-performing SMEs.
With a total budget of €1.14 billion, Eurostars stimulates them to lead international collaborative research and innovation projects by easing access to support and funding.
