Gedea has been granted SEK 500,000 in appropriations from the SME Instrument phase 1 program within the EU Horizon 2020 framework program. The Horizon 2020 program is competitive and only a few percent of all grant applications are granted.
- The grant from Horizon 2020 is both an important funding that enables us to maintain momentum and also an acknowledgement of the qualities of the company. We are very proud to receive the grant in such tough competition, says CEO Annette Säfholm.
Horizon 2020 is the EU's largest research and innovation program with nearly 80 billion euros in funding, available for 7 years (2014-2020). The program emphasizes high-quality science, industrial management and meeting social challenges. The goal is to ensure that Europe produces world-class science, removes barriers to innovation and facilitates the public and private sector to work together for innovation.
