Under Horizon 2020, the new EU research programme for 2014-20, the European Commission and the European Investment Bank Group (EIB and EIF) have launched a new generation of financial instruments and advisory services to help innovative firms access finance more easily.

This fund is a framework programme, organised in different strands (sub-programmes)

?A framework programme is an umbrella structure intended to serve various funding schemes (strands / sub-programmes). Each strand includes specific themes and funding rules.

You will find here the outline of EU subsidies synthetised in an easy-to-read format. This section answers all your critical questions on EU grants (How much can I get? Does my project match this grant? When must I submit my application? …)


The new programme called "InnovFin" provides to innovative companies a new generation of financial instruments and consulting services to finance research and innovation (R&I)

Does my project meet the priority requirements of this fund?

Financial products InnovFin provide co-financing to SMEs, intermediate size companies (ISC) and large companies (LC) in the European Union and other countries involved in Horizon2020 in the form of loans (via the banks) or guarantees.
