Securing European funding for biomaterials in medicine and healthcare


European funding provides a good opportunity for industry and academia to access high levels of funding for high-impact collaborative research.  

Applying for European funding does contain bureaucratic steps, but the rules for success are clear and for well considered projects the process is straightforward and has a higher success rate than much of the alternative UK based funding.

In response to the recent FP7 European funding calls Chemistry Innovation are running the following event:

Securing European Funding for Biomaterials in Medicine and Healthcare: Opportunities & Approach

12th August 2010, Runcorn

The event is positioned to provide practical help and inspiration for partners who are looking to join a consortium, build their consortium or are looking to sharpen their proposal for an existing consortium.

Bookable sessions are available with the representatives from the UK’s HEALTH and NMP National Contact Points (NCPs) and CIKTN’s European funding expert.  These people are able to provide you with FREE effective advice on your proposal & gives a FREE alternative to the use of consultants

The agenda is given below: (Please click on the links below to access slides and recordings of each of the presentation)
