This 3 to 4-day conference, the 'Innovative Enterprise Week', will raise awareness of the potential for the financial instruments, facilities and accompanying measures launched, in particular, under Horizon 2020 to enhance access to finance for research and innovation. A particular focus will be the interactions possible between these instruments, COSME's, European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF), and the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI), as well as with instruments at national and local level. The event will include sessions on alternative finance, such as crowdfunding. It will bring together policy-makers, financial intermediaries and representatives of the research, innovation and business communities, including SMEs (especially young enterprises).
