Young innovative companies can also receive a subsidy if R&D costs are at least 15% of your total yearly expenses in (minimum) one year out of the three years preceding a EU Partnership on Innovative SMEs / Eurostars application.

The maximum funding amount is a grant of 100,000 euro per project. The exact funding amount depends on whether your project activities fall into the category of industrial scientific research or experimental development.
