The talk is all about how to use Financial Instruments in Fostering Research and Innovation. The event aims at raising awareness of the potential for the financial instruments, facilities and accompanying measures launched, especially under EU’s Horizon 2020 funding scheme to enhance access to finance for research and innovation.
A particular focus of the conference will be to enhance interactions between the financial instruments to help innovative firms access finance more easily.
Key attendees are policy-makers, financial intermediaries (such as bank or other lender and risk-capital fund), representatives of the research, innovation and/or business communities (including SMEs and medium and large midcaps).
