Horizon 2020 SME instrument

Horizon 2020 SME Instrument funding programme targets highly innovative SMEs with a strong ambition to grow and internationalise through market-oriented innovation projects.

The European Commission is currently looking for potentially disruptive businesses to invest in and support as part of the SME instrument, with an estimated budget of €3billion over 7 years (2014-2020).  Successful companies will receive up to €2.5million in funding, world class business support and mentoring.

The SME instrument is a three phased approach, with the aim of transforming disruptive ideas into concrete, innovative solutions with European and global impact.
