Fast Track in 2020 - what's new?

In 2019, for the first time, both SMEs and large entrepreneurs can apply for co-financing under one competition procedure. An additional novelty is the possibility of participating in the competition not only of the companies themselves, but also of consortia of entrepreneurs and scientific units. In practice: SMEs or large companies can apply for grants alone, in partnership or in cooperation with universities or research institutes. Such a solution will enable better planning, preparation and implementation of research and development projects.
