Dans Innovation, research

We have already published in the last days some articles related to cascade funding opportunities available for SMEs, start-ups, scale-ups and mid-cap.

We focussed the attention on opportunities related to Mobiliy/Transport/Automotive, digital & smart manufacturing, micro-electronics, greentech, aeronautics / space / defence / ICT, textile, health / agrifood.

Even tough we introduced the principle of a cascade funding scheme, Enterprise Europe Brussels wants to add a few lines to « dejargonise » the concept and help the potential beneficiaries to easily catch what’s in for them via these calls.

The European Commission define them as follows:  » Cascade funding, also known as Financial Support for Third Parties (FSTP), is a Commission mechanism to distribute public funding in order to assist beneficiaries, such as start-ups, scale-ups, SME and/or mid-caps, in the uptake or development of digital innovation. It also starts from an ongoing project on which these beneficiaries can be added during the course of the project. »

Compared to the « normal » funding schemes for R&I, cascade funding is a more user-friendly application scheme especially dedicated to the above-mentioned players which allows some on-going EU-funded projects to publish their own open calls for further funding.

It’s therefore an easy way for entrepreneurs from start-ups, scale-ups, SMEs and mid-caps to make the experience of EU collaborative project while supporting the uptake or development of digital innovation.
