Innovation is the key for continuing successful business. To initiate innovation and collaborations non-dilutive funding opportunities for companies became increasingly important as a strategic source of financing and support. In particular, EU-funding in Horizon2020 with the new EIC Accelerator, Eurostars and support by Innosuisse will be presented. Insights into running projects from companies’ representatives will be integrated into the program as well as table top exhibitions of supporting organisations. BaselArea.Swiss and Euresearch Basel offer this afternoon event for SMEs, start-ups and people with an entrepreneurial spirit as well as stakeholders in this field and provide a unique overview on different funding opportunities. The mission is to help entrepreneurs to find the best matching funding instrument for individual needs.
