The SME instrument

The SME instrument has been designed specifically for single or groups of highly innovative SMEs with international ambitions, determined to turn strong, innovative business ideas into winners on the market. The instrument provides full-cycle business innovation support from the stage of business idea conception and planning (phase I) over business plan execution and demonstration (phase II) to commercialisation (phase III). Participants will be able to call on business innovation coaching for the duration of their project.

 

1Phase I (proof-of-concept): Explore the scientific or technical feasibility and commercial potential of your new idea in order to develop an innovation project, with the help of a € 50,000 grant, and receive more support in case of a positive outcome!

2Phase II (development & demonstration): Develop your sound, ground-breaking business idea further with the help of a grant in the order of € 500,000 to 2,5 million into a market-ready product, service or process!

 

3Phase III (go-to-market): Take advantage of additional EU support to enter the market successfully (no grants).

 

Scheme of the three phases

 

 

Another important feature is the opportunity to submit proposals (Phase 1 and Phase 2) in several deadlines during the year, since the SME instrument is a c. d. open a call.
