The EU Energy Focus service is a free UK Government-funded service, that aims to ensure that UK organisations are well informed and have every chance of success in applying for and securing European funding for energy-related projects. It provides support for a range of European funding opportunities with a focus on Horizon 2020, but also covering opportunities such as the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking. The service includes confidential, one-to-one discussion of proposal ideas, webinars on upcoming and current Calls for Proposals, consortium building support and review of draft proposals.
