Brussels, 19 May 2003
A information day to discuss European partnering and funding opportunities for small businesses in the biohealth sector will take place on 11 June in Loos, France.
The main objective of the information day is to help small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in the biohealth field assess which partnering and funding mechanisms are best suited to their needs.
Two round tables will be organised to discuss the potential benefits of participating in the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) and other European partnering support mechanisms such as EUREKA and regional innovation relay centres (IRCs).
Representatives from the Commission and CORDIS will be present to give an overview of FP6 and the services available to potential participants.
