VistaMilk European Funding

Since the launch of the Centre in September 2018, VistaMilk researchers have already been participating in 32 EU-funded projects. Team members now coordinate 4 large EU projects totalling over €50 million and involving more than 120 partners. In total, the VistaMilk team has secured over €11M in EU grants.

Most of these projects are funded by Horizon 2020, the EU’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, across its different sub-programmes (including Marie Curie and FET-Open), but also by Interreg and Life.

VistaMilk has a dedicated team responsible for supporting both national and international funding opportunities supporting proposals development, facilitating partner searches and navigating open calls. We also facilitate access to the National Contact Points and National Delegates to advise and support our team when applying for funding.
