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 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 first webinar, entitled “What is SMEI and is it Suitable for my Business?” will be broadcast live on 28th March 2019 at 10.00 and will finish approximately 2 hours later.

The webinar will begin with a 20-minute presentation by European 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 to use this webinar on An access code for the webinar will then be sent to you ahead of the event.  

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

We look forward to your participation.
