EU funds – current calls for entrepreneurs
At the end of the last year, the planned schedule of calls was published in the Enterprises and Innovations Operational Programme for Entrepreneurs (OPPIK) for the year 2018.
Currently, applications can be submitted in several energy programmes (Saving energy, Photovoltaic systems for one’s own consumption, renewable sources of energy), in the Technology programme within the specific call focusing on automation/digitalisation as well as in the Marketing programme for supporting the participation on international fairs and exhibitions.
Three financial “smaller” programmes have been opened that are designed for supporting some activities in the area of research, development and innovations: funding the verification of the application potential of the results R&D (Proof of Concept), protection of industry ownership (Innovation) and purchase of services in the area of innovations (Innovations vouchers).
During the 1st quarter, applications should be received in the area of programmes: Potential (investments into centres of research and development), ICT and shared services (development of software and ICT technologies), Energetically effective buildings or the new Risk capital programme for supporting start-ups. Further to the dealings with the European committee, the Innovations and Applications should be announced by mid-year.
