Webinar - Innovation Funding for Welsh Automotive Sector Webinar - Wednesday 24 November 2021 @ 12:00-13:30

Welsh Government

Is your business maximising its opportunities for development through innovation grant funding?

Join the event.

Horizon Europe is the EU’s key funding programme for research and innovation. Whilst the UK has left the EU, we have agreed to associate to Horizon Europe which means that all UK organisations can access significant funding for research and innovation projects, with up to 100% of eligible direct costs funded. Many of the current automotive calls for proposals in Horizon Europe are related to autonomous vehicles, low carbon vehicles and vehicle electrification and provide an exciting opportunity to ensure you develop your future systems and solutions with ready access to the European automotive supply chain.

Join this event to hear more about the current and upcoming Horizon Europe calls and how to apply for funding, how the Welsh Government can help and how you can build a consortium with European partners.

There is no registration required, just save this message in your diary and join us on Wednesday 24 November at 12noon.
