A unique opportunity for your SME to learn how to prepare successful business proposals under Horizon 2020’s SME Instrument, both for Phase 1 and Phase 2: get ready to the new SME Instrument calls 2016-2017! We are looking for high growth, highly innovative SMEs with global ambitions that want to disrupt the established value networks and existing markets. You should be driven, actively investing in innovation, and looking to grow. SMEs are recommended to apply for Phase 1, but may also apply for subsequent phases depending on the progress of their proposals: The European Union will provide €50 000 in funding, and carry out a feasibility study to verify the viability of the proposed disruptive innovation or concept. The SME will draft an initial business proposal (around 10 pages). Phase 2: Assisted by the EU, the SME will further develop its proposal through innovation activities, such as demonstration, testing, piloting, scaling up, and miniaturisation. It will also draft a more developed business plan (around 30 pages). Proposals will be based on a business plan developed on phase 1 or otherwise. The EU aims to contribute between €0.5 million and €2.5 million.
