Funding instrument for CDTI's innovative SMEs

The Centre for Industrial Technological Development (CDTI) has just launched a new aid programme called "Technology Demonstration Projects". This new funding instrument is aimed at experimental development projects undertaken by SMEs in high TRL (7 and/or 8) whose objective is technology demonstration in conditions similar to the real environment or for projects whose result are prototypes that must be validated in real environments and certified for commercial use.

The minimum budget for the activity will be €500,000, while the maximum will be €15,000,000, in the form of a partially reimbursable loan.  This aid allows financial coverage of up to 85% of the approved budget, with a non-refundable instalment of 15%. The duration of the project will be from 12 to 36 months, starting upon application and during the project justification process.

If you are interested in submitting projects to this call, PROINT PROJECTEN will assist you in the completion of all the necessary documentation for the presentation and will manage the entire project from conception to completion.
