In the frame of the annual Welsh Government 2016 Annual Conference, Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) and WEFO have co-organised a Eurostars Workshop to inform the participants about the second phase of the Eurostars programme, the European funding and support programme to be specifically dedicated to SMEs.

This event will include detailed information about the programme and advice on how to prepare a good Eurostars application.
It will be relevant to all interested parties who plan to organise an international, market driven, collaborative research project with R&D performing SMEs.

Key presentations will be given by Dr Peter Chisnal (EUREKA Secretariat), Graham Mobbs (UK National Contact Point) and Dr Arnold Meijers (National Contact Point, Netherlands).

It will be a great opportunity to share expertise and benefit from working beyond national borders. With a 1.14bn budget Eurostars supports the development of rapidly marketable innovative products, processes and services.

The workshop will take place in the afternoon; 120 delegates are expected to attend.
