CFMS & Pera Technology to hold Horizon 2020 Funding Breakfast Seminar

The Centre for Modelling and Simulation (CFMS) and Pera Technology will be holding a Horizon 2020 Breakfast Seminar on 30th September 2015 between 08.00 - 11.00.

Taking place at Bristol and Bath Science Park, delegates can learn about the grant funding opportunities available to organisations, through Horizon 2020, the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme.

Pera Technology have proven new product development processes for businesses of all types and sizes. From accessing grant funding to enable small to medium-sized companies to embark on new product development journeys, to providing the project management expertise that de-risks this process and ultimately delivers successful innovation projects. If unable to provide the answer in-house, Pera Technology are able to access an extensive network of suppliers and world class scientists to provide a solution.

The event will offer delegates the opportunity to learn more about grant funding options available, how to navigate the application process through to hints and tips to improve success in obtaining funds. Through ‘The SME Instrument’, part of Horizon 2020, dedicated funds are available for small and medium size organisations of up to €5 million that are developing high-potential and innovative new products.

Sam Paice, Chief Operating Officer, CFMS commented, “We are delighted to be partnering with Pera Technology. This is a great opportunity for organisations to learn how to successfully access EU funding.”

The Horizon 2020 Breakfast Seminar commences with registration and breakfast from 08.00am, followed by presentations at 08.30am. To view the agenda and register for the event, click here. If you would like to be added to the distribution list for CFMS events and newsletters, email
