Jointly funded by the Turkish Government and The European Union, the ‘Turkey in Horizon 2020’ project offers a wide range of support for small and medium businesses in Turkey. The support includes partnering and networking events, a wide range of training courses and assistance with developing proposals and presentations. Further information can be found at

As part of this programme, we are pleased to announce the fourth in a series of free webinars for small businesses who want to find out more about the support and funding available under the European Commission’s Accelerator (SME Instrument) programme.

This Webinar is entitled “Accelerator Financial Issues”. It will focus on the ‘Blended Finance’ aspects of the programme, along with guidance on interpreting and compiling the financial information necessary when applying for EC support. The Webinar will be transmitted live using ‘Zoom’ software on 25th March 2020, starting at 10.00 and finishing approximately 2 hours later.

The Webinar will begin with presentations by European and TÜBİTAK experts, followed by the opportunity to ask them questions, either live or by email. A number of frequently asked questions (FAQs) will also be covered. To participate, please register your interest at .You will then be sent a ‘Zoom’ log in ahead of the transmission date.

Because any submissions to the EC must be made in English, the Webinar will also be conducted mainly in English, although Turkish speakers will be available.

We look forward to your participation.
