The inter-company training course aims to provide an overview of the main tools through which an industrial company can reduce the cost of investments in research and development, thanks to access to dedicated public funding. Both direct European Union funds (Horizon 2020, COSME) and indirect funds (FESR) will be dealt with, up to the national instruments (Sustainable Growth Fund).
