KTN and Innovate UK to host Horizon 2020 Cascade Funding Opportunities Webinar
Posted on 05/03/2020
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.
You can access all the details of currently available Cascade Funding opportunities here: https://ec.europa.eu/info/funding-tenders/opportunities/portal/screen/opportunities/competitive-calls
The webinar covers: an introduction to Cascade Funding; where to find and access Cascade Funding opportunities, presentations from various projects offering Cascade Funding opportunities; and a Q&A session.
