Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship finances R&I projects:

The Government of Flanders wants to stimulate innovation in Flanders. Therefore, it grants our agency annually the budgets necessary to finance research and development (R&D) by and for Flemish companies. All types of companies are eligible for R&I funding, even if their innovative projects are non-technological.

Companies can apply for R&I funding throughout the year. The agency evaluates the applications based on multiple criteria. During these evaluations, we attach equal value to the quality and the valorization of the research and/or development. For SMEs there is a SME Programme (SME Innovation Project and SME feasibility study) made to measure.

Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship supports collaboration in innovation:

Collaboration is an important aspect of Flemish innovation policy. Collaboration enables companies and knowledge centres to tackle common technological issues efficiently. It also allows them to develop their internal know-how. The agency offers funding and advice to any form of collaboration that supports innovation.
