Horizon 2020 Cascade Funding opportunities round-up

Posted on 31/03/2020

What is Cascade Funding?

Financial Support for Third Parties (FSTP) or Cascade Funding.

Cascade Funding, also known as Financial Support to Third Parties (FSTP), is a mechanism of the European Commission to distribute public funds in order to create new companies, increase their scalability, SMEs and / or mid-cap companies, in the adoption or development of digital innovation.

The main objective of this financing method is to simplify administrative procedures with SMEs, thus allowing some projects financed by the EU to issue, in turn, open calls to obtain more funding.

On the 27 March 2020, KTN and Innovate UK hosted a Horizon 2020 Webinar on Cascade Funding which is available to view here.

Current opportunities for the next two months are listed below and will be updated monthly.
