Types of eligible projects

Projects must relate to:
  • research and development, e.g. experimental development of new products/services (mandatory for large enterprises)
  • implementation of innovations arising from R&D work carried out by the applicant on its own or on its behalf or purchased by it outside the project.
The above two types of projects must aim to develop and/or implement an innovative solution, i.e.:
  • a new or improved product or service (product innovation) 
  • a new or improved business process to be integrated by the enterprise in the production of products or services (business process innovation).

The solution must be implementable in business and better satisfy the needs of customers than solutions available on the market or competitive solutions.
If your project meets the above requirements, it can also cover other areas of the enterprise, such as:

  • R&D infrastructure,
  • eco-friendly activities (so-called greening of businesses),
  • digitalisation,
  • internationalisation (promotion of products abroad),
  • obtaining protection of industrial property rights and their defence,
  • developing staff competencies.
