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 third 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 ‘SME Instrument’ (SMEI). The webinar is entitled “How do I Develop a Business Plan to satisfy ‘Accelerator’ (SME Instrument) Requirements?” and will be broadcast live using ‘Zoom’ software on 10th December 2019 starting at 10.00 and finishing approximately 2 hours later.

The webinar will begin with a 20-minute presentation 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 broadcast date.

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

We look forward to your participation.
