Grant-It and the SusChem brokerage event

Participants can propose their project ideas for the 2018 and 2019 calls of Horizon 2020 on GRANT-IT – a one-stop access to funding opportunities from the European Commission and Regional and National governments in the field of sustainable chemistry.

SusChem members can use GRANT-IT resources for free to search for funding, identify project opportunities, propose project ideas and search for potential project partners. SusChem members can log-in with their SusChem username and password.

Submitting your project ideas via GRANT-IT will make it available to the whole SusChem community and allow interested partners to contact you for meeting requests when the brokerage speed dating tool is open.
