FREE Event: An Opportunity to Access EU R&D Funding

CK Science would like to take this opportunity to invite you an event which we think you will find valuable.

By attending this FREE event, you will learn first-hand about the opportunities for European R&D funding  in  Healthcare  projects soon to be announced in the 2012 FP7 call. This call has a significant focus on SMEs, with guaranteed EC funding to leading SME partners in successful consortia and a range of more broadly specified topics targeted at SME interests.

During the event there will also be an opportunity to hear about other sources of European Funding for SMEs through the Research for the Benefit of SMEs and Eureka Eurostars programs.

The event, organised in partnership with CK Science and Beta Technology will also provide details on how to access further support , give attendees a chance  to meet with national support teams, hear from a successful SME participant  and network with potential partners.  A buffet lunch will be provided.
