The European Union has rolled out “Horizon 2020” a funding initiative aimed at securing Europe’s global competitiveness and is an integrated funding system to cover all research and innovation funding currently provided through the EU. 

As part of the approach to break down barriers to create a genuine single market for knowledge, research and innovation, small and medium sized enterprises will be encouraged to participate across Horizon 2020 programmes through a new dedicated SME instrument. It aims to fill gaps in funding for early-stage, high-risk research and innovation by SMEs as well as stimulating breakthrough innovations. Our office has drafted a summary guide on the funding supports on offer to SME's.
