MIT R&D collaboration 2021
Innovating together. Sometimes you achieve just that little bit more when you work together. That is why you can apply for a subsidy for a partnership of at least two SMEs.
An MIT-R&D collaboration project consists of industrial research, experimental development or a combination of these. The project is carried out by the partners at joint expense and risk.
MIT R&D grant amount
The subsidy amounts to 35% of the eligible costs. The subsidy available is a minimum of € 50,000 and a maximum of € 200,000 for regular projects. That means a total amount of € 100,000 per partner. The maximum subsidy for large R&D projects is € 350,000 per project and therefore a maximum of € 175,000 per partner.
When is the MIT R&D deadline?
From 1 June to 9 September 2021, a subsidy could be applied for R&D collaborative projects.
What are the conditions?
- In the MIT R&D collaboration project, the costs and input per SME is fairly divided.
- The project must be in line with the mission-driven top sector policy.
- One participant may not bear more than 70% of the costs.
- Only the costs incurred by the SME entrepreneurs are eligible.
In the food processing industry it is increasingly important to provide insight into the origin and processing steps of a product. That is why ICT company X, together with a wholesaler of agricultural products, wants to develop a system that offers insight into the total flow of a product. The ICT company and the wholesaler are jointly developing a platform that offers insight into this process based on external data (such as sensors). This platform makes it possible to further optimize processes with the help of big data analysis.
MIT feasibility study
Did you know that you can also apply for a grant for a feasibility project? This allows you to map out the technical and economic risks of an innovation project. This instrument is called an MIT feasibility study.
