    Are you the beneficiary of an ongoing project funded by the EMFF? Has your project just ended? Or perhaps you're considering applying for a grant in the future, maybe under the EMFAF? If you've answered yes to one of these questions, then this workshop is for you: make sure you don't miss it!

     

    The workshop seeked to address a shortcoming identified in many EMFF-funded projects, namely: what happens when the grant support ends?

    Ideally, grants are awarded to innovative projects, products, and / or services that hold great potential, but are not yet sufficiently developed to enter the market or to raise capital from private investors. The purpose of a grant is to "nurture" these ideas until they grow mature and are ready to stand on their own feet.

    However, for a number of reasons, several EMFF-funded projects often end up finishing with the grant itself. There is often limited consideration of sustaining or developing projects following grant funding.

    The workshop presented success stories, information and investment options for project managers to consider with the objective of making existing and future projects more sustainable.
