Innowwide, a call funded by the European Union as part of the European Partnership on Innovative SMEs with the aim of encouraging innovative SMEs to take their R&D to markets all over the world, by assessing the viability of their research or commercial ambitions in international markets, is now open.
A grant of 60,000 euro can be assigned to 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 who will apply.
SMEs will choose a target region or country where to take their R&D and find a local counterpart.
The grant will fund a feasibility project over a six-month period useful to:
- conduct market feasibility studies for innovative projects or solutions, and
- work with local experts in the target country where the project will be implemented.
Innowwide can be a useful tool in a Research and Development journey:
- During the development of a project idea, to assess whether the selected local partner (or subcontracted organization) can cooperate with the SME in a future international R&D project;
- After successfully finishing the R&D project, to understand whether the SME’s product-, process- or service-market combination could be commercialised in the target market.
The deadline for applications is 15 November 2022, at 5pm (Italy time).
