Access EU innovation funding

Taking part in an EU funded research or innovation project is a great way to boost your company's competitiveness and help you take your innovation to market.  The team at Enterprise Europe Network Scotland can work with you to identify your needs and potential and connect you with the right partners for successful projects.

We don't fund any projects ourselves, but we provide information on the following programmes;

  • Horizon 2020 - the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with almost €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020)
  • EIC Accelerator (formally SME instrument)
  • Fast Track to Innovation
  • Eurostars

First of all, you need to be based in Scotland, with an innovation project and a strong team. At Enterprise Europe Network Scotland we can assess your technology to identify if this is a suitable fit for European funding, help you formulate your ideas, help find partners and provide objective feedback on your proposal.
