Horizon 2020 Energy 1-2-1’s - Stand 19

Horizon 2020 is the European Commission’s research and innovation funding programme. UK organisations continue to be eligible for European funding. The Treasury will underwrite the payment of such awards, even when specific projects continue beyond the UK’s departure from the EU.  Funding is available in 2018 for research projects to develop solutions to reduce the cost and increase performance of floating wind technology.

Helen Fairclough, the UK National Contact Point (NCP) for Energy in Horizon 2020, will be available for 1-2-1 meetings with delegates.  Appointments for 1-2-1s can either be pre-booked in advance directly or drop-in on the day at Stand 19. Drop-in appointments are subject to availability. To book an appointment, please contact Helen Fairclough, EU Energy Focus, or +44(0)845 6000 430. Please provide some information about your organisation and your areas of interest.

The EU Energy Focus service is a free UK Government-funded service, that aims to ensure that UK organisations are well informed and have every chance of success in securing European funding for energy-related projects. The service includes confidential, one-to-one discussion of proposal ideas and review of draft proposals. The UK NCP can provide support to any proposal involving a UK organisation and is part of a network of NCPs across Europe so can also signpost non-UK organisations to support in their countries.
