The fourth in a series of 12 project writing training events for SMEs was successfully staged at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Adana on 22nd October. The event attracted 49 delegates ranging from microbusinesses to larger enterprises.
The event was staged as part of the ‘Turkey in Horizon 2020 Phase II project, which is jointly funded by the Republic of Turkey and the European Union. The aim of the training was to better inform SMEs about the European Commission’s ‘Horizon 2020’ programme which is the main vehicle for funding innovative SME projects to a stage where they may be commercialised. The event began with general information sessions about the Turkish project and Horizon 2020. This was followed by sessions which focused on the three key areas which project evaluators concentrate on; ‘Excellence’, ‘Impact’ and ‘Implementation’. The event was highly rated in terms of content and usefulness by the participants.
Almost 300 delegates have participated in proposal training and development events held since the start of the project in January 2019.
