Grants for small and medium sized companies

The current tender is open for cooperations between companies from Austria, the Czech Republik, Russia, Germany and the French region Hauts-de-France as well as the Belgian region Wallonia and Flanders. Interested small and medium sized enterprises (SME) can team up with other companies from one or more of these partnering countries and together work out a innovative project.

For German companies this means that they have to comply with the current ZIM (central innovation program  middle-tier) guidelines.

CORNET and IraSME partnering events for R&D project grants and technology project grants

Together with the partner network CORNET, IraSME organizes every year several partnering events. These events offer interested SMEs and research institutions from the participating countries the possibility to obtain information regarding ideas from R & D projects and to actively engage in an exchange. During these events, the participants present their project ideas, competencies or their companies in so call elevator pitches of no more than 5 minutes of length. This has the purpose that all participants get the opportunity to present themselves and their ideas and to potentially find the right cooperation partner for their project. The last partnering event took place as part of the innovation day middle class on the 2nd of June 2016 in Berlin.

The next partnering event will take place on the 24th of November 2016 in Prague. The registration for the event is free of charge and will soon be possible.
