28th IraSME Call for Proposals has opened

On 10 June 2021, CORNET’s partner network IraSME has opened its latest call for transnational R&D proposals with deadline on 29 September 2021. Small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) interested in submitting their applications for funding of market-oriented research and development projects may find all relevant documents and information in the section current call on the IraSME website.

IraSME: Supporting the development of new products, processes or technical services ready for market launch

Similar to CORNET, IraSME is a network of ministries and funding agencies of several countries and regions which regularly join forces to support and promote transnational research and innovation projects. While CORNET focuses on funding pre-competitive Collective Research, IraSME aims at funding the development of new products, processes or technical services ready for market launch shortly after the project phase.

The participating countries/regions in the 28th Call for Proposals are: Alberta (Canada), Brazil, Flanders (Belgium), Germany, Luxembourg, Russia, Turkey and Wallonia (Belgium). More information on each funding institution and conditions is available in the section countries & regions on the IraSME website.

Austria and the Czech Republic will have to skip this current call but are likely to re-join the 29th Call for Proposals with its deadline end of March 2022.

The IraSME coordination office is available for further questions and consultation by e-mail to info@ira-sme.net.
