Consultation for SMEs: Innovation Club

The coordinator of CORNET, the AiF FTK GmbH, initiates a new consultation offer for SMEs and institutions who would like to implement national or international R&D projects. Besides the personal consultation, members benefit from the broad variety of seminars the AiF FTK has to offer and will be able to establish new business contacts at networking events with participants from science and industry.

The Innovation Club membership offers technical assessment and assistance for innovation projects including an overview of available funding instruments that would fit the member’s needs. ‘In my experience SMEs are often willing to implement innovative procedures but are overstrained to find the right measure in the jungle of funding possibilities. An individualised evaluation and recommendation for each project idea is the key to a successful funding approach for their R&D problems’, explained Michael Krause, managing director of AiF FTK GmbH and founder of the Innovation Club.

‘The counselling session was an excellent opportunity to obtain a complete overview of the funding possibilities for SMEs. Thanks to the well-structured presentation it was easy to identify suitable funding programmes for us.’ Uwe Köhler, Schaper & Brümmer GmbH & Co. KG, Salzgitter (Germany)

The annual membership to the Innovation Club contains two individualised funding consultations as well as a full report about subsidies for SMEs. Moreover, the membership includes one workshop from the broad seminar programme of the AiF FTK Academy and a 10% discount for every other employee of the member who would like to attend a workshop as well. To top the proposal off, members are invited to join the various networking events to tie suitable business contacts.

Annual fee: € 899
