Welsh businesses pushed to realise EU opportunities with funding boost

£70,000 is to be allocated to Welsh businesses hoping to make it big beyond British borders. In an effort to help companies access EU funding for business development across Europe, a mixture of grants and advice will be available to applicants. There will be up to £1000 on offer to fund a company’s travel needs (for instance, to liaise with other companies on collaborative bids) and up to £10,000 available to cover bid-writing costs.

The funds will come through SCoRE Cymru (Supporting Collaborative Research and Innovation in Europe), a fund managing body set up by the EU Horizon 2020 initiative. You can register your interest and find out more by emailing Horizon 2020.
