EU KETs4Dual-Use: Access to EU funding

Access to EU funding opportunities for dual-use SMEs

As part of an EU project focused on export of European dual-use products and services to third markets, a series of webinars will be organised in the coming months for ambitious European small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to increase their knowledge about the trends and technologies and potential business opportunities within the three target markets Canada, Singapore and United Arab Emirates (UAE). The webinars are organized in order to engage SMEs to participate in business missions to the three target countries in late 2022/early 2023.

In this third of four webinars, experts from Directorate General Defence Industry and Space (DEFIS) will provide insights into the European Defence Fund and opportunities for SMEs to engage in projects under this scheme.

Who should join (target audiences): Ambitious small and medium sized entreprises (SMEs) and research institutions with a dual-use product or service, and an interest in attending one or more of the three business missions.

Why you should join: Get unique insights into the three markets, increase your knowledge and explore European financing opportunities.
