Learn how to access research and innovation funding from the EU's Horizon Europe - a scheme with a €95.5 billion budget until 2027.

Our Funding and Finance Fortnight webinar will explore the array of Horizon Europe funding opportunities and what it takes to be successful.

We’ll explain exactly what the grant assessors are looking for, and how to create a stand-out application.

Bold, clear and simple writing will be key and our speakers will demonstrate how to communicate your proposition properly, making the assessor’s ‘yes’ decision as simple as possible.

We’ll also explain how to avoid the common pitfalls, how to present your financials and how to manage the process effectively from beginning to end.

  • What grants are available to UK businesses?
  • Which organisations can receive funding?
  • What project activities can be funded?
  • What support is available for businesses wishing to apply?
