Innovate UK and KTN are hosting this year’s Horizon 2020 NMBP (Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Biotechnology and Advanced Manufacturing and Processing) event which is aimed at supporting collaboration across the UK and Europe.

We will be promoting funding opportunities available for Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Biotechnology and Advanced Manufacturing and Processing through Horizon 2020. Horizon 2020 is the EU’s largest research and innovation funding programme, with over 1 billion Euros earmarked for calls in 2018-2019.

Delegates can expect:

  • Pointers and tips on achieving success in Horizon 2020
  • Valuable insights on topics around NMBP to be funded by the EU in 2019
  • An overview of the support available locally and nationally to develop applications
  • Brokerage sessions throughout the day
  • Consortium building and proposal development on specific call topics

You can access the current Horizon 2020 work programme here.

Note: Some of the 2019 call topics may still undergo some changes prior to official launch in autumn 2019. It is recommended you check for the most recent work programme version when preparing your proposals.
