In preparation for:
Is your organization active in the bio and circular theme and are you interested in European funding opportunities? The EU Research and Innovation Funding Programme Horizon 2020 has earmarked around 500 million euros for bio and circular topics in the upcoming 2020 calls.
Finding the right consortium partners is key for a successful proposal. Business Finland’s Bio and Circular Finland Program, with the assistance of Horizon 2020 National Contact Points, wants to help you make the initial connections. We will prepare you for Info Days and Brokerage Events in Brussels, where you can hear detailed information on upcoming calls as well as connect with your future consortium partners. Business Finland will help you prepare for these events so that you can make the most of them. While the Brussels event themselves are free, participants will have to cover their own travel costs.
If you plan to participate in the upcoming calls, the prep event on May 24th is for you!

You can also check the video recording of the event later.
