Horizon 2020: Travel Vouchers

Helping you to collaborate across borders

InterTradeIreland’s Horizon 2020 travel schemes support those working in partnership on a cross-border basis in Horizon 2020 to travel both on the island and across the EU.

The Cross-Border Collaboration Voucher offers up to £500 or euro equivalent to early-stage partnerships travelling across Ireland and Northern Ireland to scope out potential project ideas. We can even help identify potential partners for you – just contact horizon2020@intertradeireland.com or download an application form from this page.

The EU Voucher offers up to £350 or euro equivalent per cross-border partner travelling to Horizon 2020 related events, consortium meetings or EU Commission brokerage events. The purpose of the travel must be to further develop a cross-border collaborative opportunity identified jointly by the North/South partnership.

Cross-border Collaboration Vouchers

The cross-border collaboration voucher can be redeemed against the cost of travel or accommodation for up to £500 or euro equivalent including VAT when meeting with partners or potential partners in the other jurisdiction with a view to engaging in Horizon 2020

EU Travel Vouchers

The EU travel voucher can be redeemed against the cost of travel or accommodation for up to £350 or the Euro equivalent including VAT to each partner to cover costs of accommodation and travel.  The purpose of this scheme is to facilitate existing North/South partnerships to travel to consortium meetings, information days and other events to meet with the European Commission and potential partners from other EU member states.

Both partners must work collaboratively to identify opportunities which necessitate travel to Europe.  Both partners must clearly state on the application form the nature of the collaborative project and provide evidence to support this collaboration. (InterTradeIreland reserve the right to seek additional confirmation/evidence).

The application process is the same as that in the cross-border collaboration section above.

Vouchers are limited so please submit your application early to avoid disappointment.
