The GCGP LEP and the Smart Specialisation Hub would like to invite you to a European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) info day, to learn more about the current funding opportunities and the available support on offer for applicants.
Calls for applications across ERDF Priority Axes 1 to 4 are currently open in the GCGP LEP area until January 2018, with an indicative budget of more than £10m available for projects that will promote research and innovation, boost competitiveness of SMEs, enhance access to and the use and quality of ICT or support the shift towards a low carbon economy in all sectors.
At the workshop we will share information on the expectations and ambition for these calls, explain why this is a priority for our region, show what support is available for applicants and facilitate a discussion on project ideas, barriers, potential solutions and opportunities.
You will hear presentations from the GCGP LEP, KEEP+ project and the Smart Specialisation Hub, followed by the opportunity to take part in stimulating round table discussions.
There will also be ample time to network over lunch.
Registration will open at 09:30am for a 10am start.
