Are you a researcher or student at Uppsala University who has started a company? Are you in need of some funding to verify and develop your company’s innovative business idea? Uppsala University Innovation will have an information meeting on upcoming funding calls, such as Vinnova’s Innovative Startups call and EIT Health Headstart programme.

In addition to presenting the different calls for funding, and how to apply, we will tell you about the support that we can provide in the application process and beyond. Our goal is simple: to help university-based startups maximise their chance of receiving funding.

We also welcome startups from our partners Uppsala Innovation Centre (UIC) and Drivhuset.

A light lunch is served from 11:45.


Register no later than 8 January 2020. We look forward to meeting you!
