euWater4i-SD guide on EU-funded opportunities for SMEs: download it now!
As a project for the internationalisation of EU SMEs, one of the objectives of euWater4i-SD is to support companies to identify and make use of national / EU funding opportunities. This is why a guide on EU-funded opportunities was created and is now available to all. The goal is to provide information on EU and public funding and grants as well as criteria and mechanisms for participation, consortium building, proposal formulation and drafting, etc.
The guide was conceived to be as user friendly as possible. Even though it is a document, it works similarly to a website, allowing free browsing throughout the whole guide thanks to a series of internal links that lead to the different sections of the document. It is divided into five sections:
- What do I need to know about European funding?
Introductory chapter and key words to understand the concept of European funds, who manages them, where, and the diverse forms in which they might be presented during the period 2021-2027.
- To which funding programmes can I apply as a company?
Mapping of programmes and EU funds to which the companies can apply, what these programmes include, key data, a review and recommendations for potential applicants.
- To which national funds can I apply as a company?
Mapping of programmes in each of the participant countries to which the companies can apply, what these programmes include, key data, a review and recommendations for potential applicants.
- Which opportunities for which sectors?
Focus by sector, allowing the identification of relevant programmes for the concerned companies, as well as information and documents of interest for the presentation of project proposals.
- How can I access EU funding?
Presentation of the lifecycle of a European project, highlighting key aspects of the application process, explaining how to elaborate a long-term strategy and including a series of recommendations and practical advice.
