) and the Dutch research organisation TNO (www.tno.nl
) invite you to express your interest in taking part in a consortium of "green" small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). Our consortium aims to respond to calls from the new Horizon EU funded programme. The new research and innovation programme has a budget of around €95.5 billion for 2021-2027.
Depending on each SME's specific interests and capabilities, consortium partners will jointly write research proposals in response to specific Horizon EU calls by the European Commission to promote a European circular economy and the European Green Deal. By collaborating with TNO, Ecopreneur.eu aims to significantly increase the chances for SMEs to receive EU-funding. We are also open to collaboration with other stakeholders.
The purpose of this questionnaire is to identify SMEs based on their characteristics, interests and capabilities.
In this preparatory stage, TNO and Ecopreneur.eu are not yet forming consortia for any specific call. It is our intention to involve SMEs in circular economy related calls when possible and appropriate - depending on the assignment of the coordination, the proposal idea and other factors.
Your information will be treated strictly confidentially by Ecopreneur.eu and TNO and is used for qualification and communications purposes related to this specific inquiry only.
