Cascade funding – Bandi Febbraio 2021 Maggio 2021

Cosa sono i cascade funding

I cascade funding (letteralmente, finanziamenti a cascata) sono finanziamenti erogati da progetti già finanziati dalla Commissione Europea.

Sono contributi a fondo perduto, con percentuali che possono andare dal 50% al 100% (spesso nella forma del voucher), che vengono erogati per:

  • Sviluppo soluzioni innovative
  • Sviluppo progetti pilota
  • Implementazioni di soluzioni tecnologiche, che utilizzino gli asset sviluppati dal progetto “madre”

Tutti i Bandi in scadenza da Febbario 2021 a Maggio 2021

Di seguito forniamo una lista  delle opportunità di cascade funding in scadenza da Febbraio 2021 a Maggio 2021.

Oltre 53 milioni di Euro da assegnare per progetti che vanno dallo sviluppo di soluzioni per la più grande infrastruttura informatica in Europa, fino alla prototipazione per nuove soluzione nel settore medicale.

idea-re può supportare la tua azienda in tutte le fasi di sviluppo del progetto, dall’attività di invio della proposta di finanziamento, fino alla fase di esecuzione. Se vuoi saperne di più, contattaci compilando il form a lato.
