EU Funding Opportunities for Innovation in Packaging and Materials - a visit to Pera

"EU Funding
Opportunities for Innovation in Packaging and Materials”

 “Making innovation pay with EU coffers!” 


A visit to PERA in Melton Mowbray


Tony Lesowiec, Head of Commercial Partnering at Pera, one of Europe’s leading innovation companies, will describeexamples of how both large and small firms have been helped to massively leverage government funding for the development of new products and processes in the materials, packaging and food supply-chains. Tony will explain how these grants can be accessed and will present case studies of projects where firms that have benefited from such grants. 


Tony says: “In these uncertain financial times, seeking out new funding and new ways to bring ideas to market is more vital than ever to help firms to compete and the good news is that the European Union has allocated millions of pounds in grants tohelps firms to achieve this.  But
actually securing string free funding, as many companies will recognise only
too well, can often be a specialism in itself. It’s a specialism that our team of proposal writers has developed very successfully. In the last four years
alone, Pera has worked with over 1000 companies and secured over £200m of funding, often building bespoke international project teams to transform
drawing-board ideas to market-ready products. For those involved in the
development of new ideas, new products and new services, the good news is that the European Commission have allocated €53bn to help business to develop new technologies in a programme called
 Framework Programme for Research and
Technological Development
