On 5 November, the EU Academic Network Saxony-Anhalt will organize an information event on European, national and regional funding opportunities for cooperation between science and industry with a special focus on the needs of SMEs. The event will take place in Halle.
A key objective of Horizon 2020 in the EU Framework Program for Research and Innovation is to support the economic reuse of innovative ideas. A large number of the funding lines of "Horizon 2020" therefore address research collaborations between universities and research institutions and companies in particular.
The event aims to provide an overview of these funding opportunities in "Horizon 2020", with particular emphasis on the new SME support instrument for the "EIC Accelerator Pilot". In addition, funding programs for research cooperations of the federal government and the state of Saxony-Anhalt are presented.
A detailed program will follow shortly.
The EU University Network Saxony-Anhalt and the Enterprise Europe Network Saxony-Anhalt invited interested scholars and enterpreneurs to an information event titled "EU funding opportunities for cooperation between science and industry".
The event took place for the first time on 20 September 2018 at Biozentrum Halle (Saale). On 18 October, it was again carried out in an almost identical format in the premises of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce in Magdeburg.
Well over 30 participants from universities and research institutes, from companies, but also representatives of Länder authorities and ministries took the opportunity to learn more about how research and innovation cooperation can be financially supported and used the opportunity to network.
The events focused on funding programs of the European Union. Alexandra Pohl, a member of the National Contact Point for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (NCP SMEs) and the National Contact Point for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (NCP MSC) presented funding opportunities offered by the European Innovation Council (EIC), which brings together innovation promotion instruments of the European Union. She also gave an overview of Marie Curie Actions, which are specifically designed to train and attract highly qualified international R&D professionals.
Another focal point was the federal funding program for cooperation between science and industry. This were expertly presented by Moritz Bradler (Service Center "Ideas-Protection-Application" of Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg) and Anja Ruhland (Funding Advice "Research and Innovation").
The overview of the funding opportunities was rounded off with a contribution by Doris Knöfel (Investitionsbank Saxony-Anhalt), who informed the audience about the research and innovation promotion portfolio of the Land Saxony-Anhalt.
Due to the positive response, the organizers - the EU University Network Saxony Anhalt and the Enterprise Europe Network Saxony-Anhalt - plan to organize this and similar information events on a regular basis in the future.
