Horizon Europe Program 2021-2027 has a budget of 95,5 billion euros for R&D&I, and every cent will be shared. You can have your fair share of it, but now it’s time to start planning how to do it.

Networks play a key role in getting EU project grants: For a newcomer in EU projects, the easiest path is to get invited in a consortium that is building a proposal. For the Coordinators, the smoothest way to build a competitive consortium is to know the best companies and other organisations active in your field. To facilitate grasping these low hanging fruits, Business Finland Sustainable Manufacturing Program organizes a series of pitching events, where different actors and ideas can meet.

In this pitching marathon the researchers who plan to build EU projects within the next four years will pitch their expertise and core research topics. Companies with matching interests can contact to indicate interest in joining potential consortiums.

When registering, indicate if you would like to pitch or listen – those who pitch will  receive a presentation template.

The company and researcher pitching slots are reserved for Finnish organizations, and related pitching materials will be made available on the program pages; thus the visibility we offer is not just in the event.

Sustainable Manufacturing Program offers several other webinars with SuMa relevant topics: Introduction to EU funding
