Horizon 2020, the European Union's Framework program for support to research and innovation provides various types of grants for research as well as other financial mechanisms. Small and Medium-sized companies (SMEs) can apply for these funds, in some cases as individual entities (e.g. the EIC Accelerator) or as a partner in a larger consortium applying for large collaborative research grants to work with academic groups and/or other companies including via the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI). The European Medicines Agency (EMA) also provides specific and dedicated support for SMEs.
