InnoTrans Business Days 2016

Business Session "EU-Funding schemes for the railway industry"

Thursday, 22 September 2016 | 9.30 - 12.00 am

The railway sector plays a remarkable role for the economy in Europe and specific funding programmes have been established on European scale. When taking a closer look at existing instruments various funding opportunities open up for even small and medium sized companies. Knowing the right programms, calls as well as suitable cooperation partners is the key to success. Therefore we offered a session focussing on precise information-sharing and consortia building for future innovative projects.
A seminar on how to apply properly for innovation projects in the frame of Horizon 2020 has been added.
