Science|Business Funding Newswire No. 1 | 30 April 2024 | Sign up here 

Your source for funding analyses & insight 

Welcome to the first edition of the S|B Funding Newswire

After two decades of covering the nuts and bolts of research and innovation policy, we are taking a step forward to launch a new service designed to help you navigate the complex landscape of research funding in Europe and beyond.

The Funding Newswire, published every Tuesday, will provide you exclusive insights into funding calls and their policy context, insider perspectives from funders public and private, and stories of Europe's most successful grant recipients. 

We will also provide you with the latest updates on funding and networking opportunities that can propel your projects forward, and help you set up international consortia, with partners in North America and Asia.

Until May 21, the content will remain fully open access. After that date,  you will need to create an account and take a subscription to access all Funding Newswire content on the website. 

Members of the Science|Business Network will retain free access by simply creating an account. 

And, of course, we will continue our open access coverage of international R&D policy on Thursdays, and of central & east European policy on alternate Wednesdays. Whether in our news services or events, Science|Business keeps you in the know about R&D funding and policy.
