The new BEL-SME call is launched

What is it? BEL-SME is a joint call launched by the three Belgian regions targeting joint R&D projects between Belgian SMEs. It is important to note that an effective collaboration between partners will be rewarded by a maximum increase of 15% compared to normal intervention rates.

Each partner is asked to submit its individual work plan (sub-project) to its regional funding agency, and a very short “umbrella” form must be sent to describe the collaboration and the joint character of the global project.

Projects will be evaluated by the innovation funding agencies of each involved partner (DGO6, Agentschap Innoveren & Ondernemen (VLAIO) and Innoviris) but a joint decision will be taken on the list of projects to be funded.

The closing date of the call is March, 30, 2018.

You’ll find here all the useful information but also the application form and guidelines.
