Learn about Innovate UK funding opportunities at the EUREKA CELTIC Cluster event on 20th Aug in London, and find potential project partners.

CELTIC, part of the EUREKA intergovernmental network, is a telecommunications industry-led initiative promoting collaborative research and innovation, supported by public authorities. CELTIC-NEXT, which deals with future networks, follows in the footsteps of the CELTIC and CELTIC-PLUS programmes. CELTIC-NEXT stimulates and facilitates innovative, industry-driven, pre-competitive R&D projects. In an increasingly digital society, CELTIC-NEXT is key to the development of next generation telecommunications technologies and end-to-end services. Enabling technologies will support the evolving needs of businesses in all sectors and give citizens in Europe and beyond access to applications and solutions that foster a ‘Smart Connected World’.


All organisations interested in participating in a CELTIC-NEXT project are invited to this event. This will be an opportunity to present and discuss proposals and find potential partners to form project consortia.


CELTIC-NEXT is for you if…

  • You want to perform collaborative R&D projects within Europe and beyond
  • You want to get public funding support
  • You want to have a high chance to get your project approved and funded
  • You want low administrative overhead
  • You want a flexible framework
  • You want high exploitation potential and business impact


During this event, Innovate UK will be announcing a funding competition for UK organisations planning to participate to the CELTIC-NEXT autumn call, whose scope will cover 5G infrastructure technologies, as well as applications and services that leverage 5G networks. Innovate UK will provide further guidance on this collaborative R&D funding competition during the event.


The briefing event is on 20th August at Prince Philip House, 3 Carlton House Terrace, London, from 9.30am-2.30pm.
