Welcome to our second show of two thousand and sixteen, a consolidation of all our
H2020 SME Instrument Hacks in this podcast include tips from valued network colleagues, Jo Oliver from Avanticell and Adam Christie from Calcivis, two successful applicants.
For 7 years we have been providing support to Scottish companies who are interested in European funding for research and development and if they decide to apply, we provide guidance and access to the best experts available to make sure their applications are as good as they can be and this applies to all the funding in Horizon 2020: the main programme, SME Instrument, Eurostars and Fast Track to Innovation. Even if you are not quite sure if they suit your business, we are here to help you make your mind up and our services are funded by Scottish Enterprise, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and the European Commission and so to you (if you are in Scotland) they are free.
Our knowledge and our support services have increased significantly since the start of Horizon 2020 and so there will be more Hacks as we gain more insight into the evaluation processes, so please subscribe to our podcast to make sure you don’t miss out.

The Enterprise Europe Network, now in more than 60 countries, is here to help you decide whether to apply, what to apply for, to find collaborative partners for your project if you need them, and then to help you make the best possible application for funding under Horizon 2020.
For some of the programmes you need a partner organisation, but not for all. For some you can even work on your own project idea. So what are you waiting for?
