€70 billion in EU funds is now up for grabs and there's an online guide on how to claim a share of it.
SNP MEP Alyn Smith said:
"Scotland's scientists and small businesses have a chance to claim their share of €70 billion of EU funding. The online guide to getting a share of the new funding programme for research and innovation, Horizon 2020, shows how.
"Scotland is a top-class research nation but the EU red tape maze has made it a nightmare to apply for funding in the past. This guide is a treasure map to that funding and should encourage more of our academics and researchers to apply.
"Horizon 2020 is a fantastic opportunity. €70 billion is there for the taking and I want to see Scots making the most of it. We're in good shape and, with the help of this new tool, Scottish fingerprints could be all over future EU funding."
The online guide for Horizon 2020 funding can be found at http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal4/desktop/en/funding/index.html.
