//New publications on the EIC Accelerator – a first for Turkey!//

The Turkey in Horizon 2020 Phase II project has produced a leaflet giving a basic outline of Accelerator and a 24 page Guide which sets out the objectives, requirements and processes involved in more detail. We believe the Guide is the first publication to draw together detailed information for SMEs interested in applying. The English versions of the Guide and the leaflet may be obtained from our Helpdesk page. Versions in Turkish will be available soon.

One of the most important services our project team offers is a number of training sessions focusing on specific audiences and experiences. Our aim is to provide the core information and knowledge transfer H2020 project development, with special focus on increasing numbers of successful applicants, and the number of projects where Turkey acts as the coordinator.


Under this activity, our team of Experts will offer one-to-one consultance visits to 100 carefully selected SMEs. Our team has two main targets: to increase the number of SMEs applying for H2020 and the success rate of these SME applications. A written roadmap will be prepared for each evaluated SME, identifying innovative potential, specific opportunity areas for H2020 participation.


The project will provide the necessary financial support for researchers to complement the training and consultancy actions that will improve awareness, information, knowledge and specific skills for successful H2020 project applications. Activities include the organisation of International Brokerage Events in both Turkey and Brussels, B2B matching tools.


In order to support organisations in all the above activities and enhance their capabilities in H2020, the project has created this website that will be used as a communication tool for all researchers seeking help from our team. Information Multipliers can also benefit from some collaboration and reference features that will only be available to them.
