Interregional Innovation Investments Instrument - (I3)

The Interregional Innovation Investments Instrument provides advisory and financial support to innovation projects in joint smart specialisation areas on the road towards commercialisation and scale-up. It is part of the European Regional and Development Fund (ERDF).

The programme is implemented in two call strands:

  • Financial and advisory support for investments in interregional innovation projects;
  • Financial and advisory support to the development of value chains in less developed regions.

Third countries can participate in this instrument, but please check the most updated eligibility criteria as ERDF funds are limited to EU Member States.
