Event: Small Business Lunchtime Briefing – EU Funding and Smart Innovation Project Opportunities
Join us during Local Enterprise Week for the Donegal County Council, Strategic Funding Event, EU Funding and Smart Innovation Project Opportunities, when the WiSAR Communications Officer, Maria Gallagher, will explore a host of funding supports for SME’s in accelerating digital innovation opportunities.
This event will explore a range of funding mechanisms from various organisations in enabling a digital strategy for business and will be of interest to those operating in the digital sector who wish to find out more about EU funding and project development opportunities.
Speakers, including Dr. Margaret Quinn, Donegal Digital/Ernact, Eileen Kelly, Donegal LEO, Maria Gallagher, WiSAR Lab and Dan Turkik, B2-EU Consulting, will present on upcoming EU funding opportunities with a specific focus on SME’s in digital innovation as well as the do’s and don’ts for businesses interested in participating in these EU programmes.
There will be an opportunity for specific questions during the interactive Q&A session at the end of the event.
Maria noted that “In today’s ever-changing global business environment, investment in R&D is essential to stay competitive, however for SMEs, resourcing R&D can be a challenge.
This is where third level industry collaborations like the Innovation Voucher scheme can really help, with a network of funding supports and research expertise available to create or improve products or services.
I am really looking forward to exploring these funding opportunities more during the upcoming Strategic Funding event and sharing some practical tips and success stories.”
Hear from Maria alongside a number of other key speakers who both facilitate and benefit from smart technologies and digitalisation. SMEs will also get the opportunity to learn more about funding opportunities for your business, as part of our Local Enterprise Week Event – EU Funding and Smart Innovation Project Opportunities.
