Are you an SME? Benefit from the opportunities offered by BioMan4R2!
Financial support to encourage resilience, sustainability and competitiveness
The project has vouchers that can be used in activities related to collaborative innovation projects that support business transformation, such as training plans, support for travel to explore markets in other countries, business continuity and resilience plans. Each company may apply for more than one voucher, but may not exceed the established funding limit of €60,000. The deadline for this call for applications is June 30.
There are 2 types of vouchers:
1. Innovation voucher (60.000€)
These are vouchers for cooperative projects between SMEs and collaborators from different sectors with common challenges of resilience, sustainability or digital transformation, and assessment and validation of existing products. They have a value of €60,000. 60% of the amount will be transferred after signing the financial agreement and the remaining 40% once the final report has been accepted.
2. Business transformation vouchers (15.000€)
These are vouchers that support SMEs through training in technology uptake, digitization and sustainable supplier business models, and developing training programs for SMEs in digitization and digital skills. They also help implement and carry out business agreements and take part in commercially viable cooperative projects, resilience analysis, business continuity plans, market access strategies, advice on reimbursement or regulatory challenges. They are valued at €15,000 and will be transferred after signing the full financial agreement.
