SME Instrument accessible to Swiss firms


Since January 2017, Swiss SME's can receive a direct funding from European Commision for their innovation projects. This is possible via the SME Instrument Programme. This specific instrument from the current Framework Programme Horizon 2020, fills in an existing gap in the funding of SME's, between R&D phases and commercialisation.

The Partnership Service from platinn provides a proven practical experience in preparation of submissions for initial phases. SME's reaching out to the innovation platform can benefit from additional supervision in order to increase their chances of success in the selection process.
