Support for EU-financed Life Science projects 

Time Wednesday 20 October, 2021 at 09:00 - 12:00
Place Zoom

How can we develop and strengthen support structures to, for example, find partners and initiate Life Science projects funded by the EU? 

• What keys and pitfalls are in the phases before the application is to be written?

• What roles can different actors play in the early process of an application?

Share experiences, learn from each other, and find new partners!

We want to strengthen the strategic collaboration within Life Science in the Baltic Sea region and Europe and create better collaboration projects and increased funding through, for example, the EU's Life Science programme. 


Target group?

The event is primarily aimed at those who in various ways support the initial steps in the process of EU funding and want to exchange knowledge and experience.

The event will be held in English.



Current updates in the program will be posted on this page.
