Title of the Roundtable: “Europe and Young Innovators: Financing Opportunities from the EU for 2014-2020 ” For the second consecutive year, EYIF is partnering with the Global Entrepreneurship Week to organise an official event at the European Parliament on 13 Nov. 2013! This year, leading Members of the European Parliament and high-profile policymakers will meet the community of European young innovators and entrepreneurs to exchange about “Europe and Young Innovators: Financing Opportunities from the EU for 2014-2020”. As the European multi-annual budget has been agreed, EYIF will inform its community about funding opportunities that will arise as from 1 Jan. 2014.
For the first time, a significant number of financing opportunities will be available to finance young entrepreneurs and innovators, their projects and initiatives. It’s time to share that with the communities of young entrepreneurs and innovators in Europe! The discussion, that will be streamed online, will present several initiatives that have been agreed such as the digital entrepreneurship plan, start-up Europe initiative, the innovation voucher in the Horizon 2020 programme, and the efforts the European Parliament are to facilitate lower interest loans for young entrepreneurs.
During the roundtable you will also have the opportunity to follow us on Facebook and Twitter and engage in the conversation by voicing your expectations for the EU fund, ask questions and make suggestions. Stay tuned with us on Facebook and Twitter. There will be more soon!
