INNOWIDE – Funding Opportunities

The Horizon 2020 funded project INNOWWIDE launched the 2nd call to support with funding innovative European SMEs and start-ups looking to compete and start business in new and emerging markets outside Europe (developing countries, large emerging economies such as Brazil, Russia, India, China, Mexico and developed countries). The call closes on March 31st, 2020.

This call for small-sized projects (officially called “Viability Assessment Projects (VAP)”) gives the opportunity for SME’s and Start-Up’s to internationalize and to outreach to markets beyond Europe.

The Viability Assessment Projects (VAPs) have a maximum duration of 6 months. The INNOWWIDE financial support rate is fixed at 70% of eligible costs with a fixed grant of 60,000€ for each assessment project.

  • Call Opening – 15th March
  • Call Deadline – 31th March
