Horizon2020 – the start of our business journey
We went along to St Johns Innovation Centre in Cambridge to learn about #Horizon2020. If you don’t already know about Horizon 2020 and you lead an innovative small to medium size enterprise (SME), it is worth reading on.
The event was organised by Enterprise Europe East and discussed the potential support available to SMEs developing innovative technologies. There is a lot of information available; for example there is a quick checklist to see if the SME “instrument” is right for you. There is also a whole new vocabulary to slip into of “DG calls, work packages, concertations and peer reviews” – But that is a story for another blog.
Following the meeting we are now putting together a synopsis of our project which we will get “peer reviewed” – the network of advice from Enterprise Europe, and the Horizon 2020 national contact points is there, why not use it?
Whatever your views about the EU, it is an investor with particular objectives to achieve. Red Potato are planning to be one of the businesses to take advantage of this opportunity. We’ll let you know how we get on!
