If you own an innovative SME, you can apply for very generous EU funding.
Innovative Irish SMEs can apply for EU funding of up to € 2.5 million (€5 million for health projects) to finance their “innovation activities”.
The money is from the Horizon 2020 SME Instrument.
19 Irish SMEs have landed the windfall
Three Dublin-based SMEs recently landed the available grant money.
- Artomatix Limited. Project: ArtomatixSuite – A 3D content generation solution for digital artists.
- Nuritas Ltd. Project: PeptiEUForce – PeptiEUForce: a game-changing ingredient for the pre-diabetic population.
- SiriusXT Ltd. Project: SMILE – Synchrotron Miniaturization enabling innovative laboratory equipment in soft x-ray tomography.
This brings the total to 19 Irish firms who have received this cash windfall.
Apply for the next round of cash
If you think you have what it takes, you can apply now. The next cut-off for the SME instrument is 13 October 2016.
“The Horizon 2020 SME Instrument helps high-potential SMEs develop ground breaking ideas that are ready to face global markets,” says the EC.
In two years, since the instruments were launched, 19,320 proposals have been received and funded 1,443 projects for a total amount of €527 million.
