Supporting SMEs going global
If you are an innovative SME, you can apply to the EU Partnership on Innovative SMEs / Innowwide for a grant of 60,000 euro to assess the viability of your research or commercial ambitions in international markets.
We’re encouraging you to take your R&D to markets all over the world. Choose a target region and country and find a local counterpart.
Who can receive funding?
Funding is for SMEs in European Union Member States or Horizon Europe Associated Countries partnering with a counterpart in Africa, North and South America, the Middle East or Asia-Pacific.
Even though only SMEs in European Union Member States or Horizon Europe Associated Countries benefit from funding, you are allowed to subcontract to your partner in your selected target country.
Subcontracted partners sign a commitment before you submit your project application.
This year, the European Partnership on Innovative SMEs / Innowwide will fund 50 projects (with up to 25 of those involving counterparts in Africa). Click here to apply
