On February 11, EBN organises a webinar to
present the 2nd INNOWWIDE call for Viability Assessment Projects,
a funding opportunity providing European SMEs with a head start in target
markets outside Europe.
The INNOWWIDE programme helps innovative SME
gain access to new international markets by funding viability assessment projects
to be deployed in cooperation with local stakeholders around the world.
The INNOWWIDE 2nd Call for applications for the VAPs –
Viability Assessment Projects – just opened on January 15th and will
close on March 31st. The budget available for the 2nd Call is
€4.2M (to be divided approximately one third per target country group).
Each approved VAP will receive a fixed grant amount of €60,000,
representing a maximum of 70% of total eligible costs (staff, consumables,
equipment, subcontracting, others) which must be a minimum of €86,000.
The webinar will provide practical information
for SMEs in Europe and potential R&I partners in third countries about the
INNOWWIDE open call: participants will learn about the scope of INNOWWIDE and
how to apply for it.
Moreover, the webinar aims to connect with Business
Support Organisations and programmes interested in further disseminating this
opportunity with their networks, and able to introduce EU SMEs to potential
partners in target countries.
