“Do I have a proper chance at funding?”

You probably have many questions. Ranging from the amount of funding you could raise to the number of times you can apply. You need to know about the legal business forms, the requirements, whether you need partners, and how to find them. In short, you want to know “Do I have a proper chance?”

Oost NL helps you find and define opportunities and possibilities for your innovation programme. Together, we can improve on your proposition, help find partners, and refine the arguments for your proposal so that you can make a well-informed decision about applying.

How ERDF aims to contribute

ERDF (in Dutch: EFRO) aims to contribute to the economic development of small- and medium-sized enterprises (SME) in the European Union. With their efforts, the initiators intend to strengthen the regional cross-sectoral potential for research and innovation. At the same time, it is supporting the conversion to a low-carbon and resource efficient economy. The operational programme promotes investments in research and innovation. It supports businesses, research and development centres, and knowledge institutions from early development to prototyping.

A well-prepared proposal

Clients appreciate the extensive knowledge of the SME industry and key players in East Netherlands. They profit from insights into the workings of the programme, and topics that currently drive innovation within a sector. Clients develop an application that is well-prepared; with insights on what is expected, how to plan their proposal, the steps to take, and what is required from their organisation in the process.

Please do not hesitate to contact us

There are many things to consider before committing to a proposal. Even with our support, the process still requires an investment in time and money. It is something one does not do lightly. We can help you make a well-informed decision.

If you want to know how your organisation could benefit from ERDF, please contact us.

We also invite you to attend one of our information sessions.
