Commission opens taps on “SME Instrument” funding for innovation

Innovative small and
medium-sized companies in Europe will be able to apply from tomorrow for grants
to help get their brightest ideas from the lab to the market. In total, some €3
billion in funding will be available under the "SME Instrument" over
the next seven years as part of Horizon 2020, the EU's new research and
innovation programme.

Funding is competitive and project proposals have to be
in line with call topics published on the Participant Portal, the gateway to EU
research funding. In 2014, some €250 million of funding will be available under
the SME Instrument's permanently open call.
