Opportunities in Horizon Europe for SMEs in the water sector

Reading time: 2

EIT Food South within the Water Scarcity project offers 8 online mentoring packages for SMEs working with water efficiency and sustainability to find funding opportunities within Horizon Europe.

Horizon Europe (HE) is the new framework programme of the European Commission (EC) to fund research and innovation. Horizon Europe has a budget of EUR 95.5 billion for the period from 2021-2027. This budget is considerably higher than the budget of the previous programme, Horizon 2020. HE offers plenty of opportunities for innovative companies. Moreover, SMEs are one of the most relevant target groups for the EC. They are essential to Europe’s strategy to promote Research and Innovation. Over EUR 8 billion in EU support for Research and Innovation activities will go directly to SMEs, most of them part of consortiums participating in EU collaborative Research and Innovation projects.

For this mentoring program, 3 mentors have been selected with an extensive experience in the proposal preparation and coordination of R & D & I projects funded by the EC to support the SMEs in the fundraising process. This group of experts is made up of Antonia Lorenzo, CEO of Bioazul; Rafael Casielles, R + D + i project manager at Bioazul; and Marco de la Feld, Project Manager at ENCO. More information.

The selected experts will provide tailored-made advice on how to access European R&D&I funding opportunities within Horizon Europe. The mentoring programme will be very practical and oriented to define the best strategy for the specific innovative solution of every SME. Thus, SMEs will be able to identify the scope, objectives, impacts and exploitation routes of your innovation and set the basis to further develop a complete and successful proposal.

The call to participate is open until November 21. Click here to register.

The price of this mentoring service is € 350 (+ applicable VAT).
