What is Innowwide?

With this programme, the European Commission (EC) aims to encourage innovative SMEs to internationalise their products and services. Innowwide funds market research and preparatory work for R&D projects in Africa, North and South America, Asia or Oceania. These projects must involve cooperation with local partners.

This programme runs from 2022-2027 and is expected to have annual calls.

An estimated € 24.000.000 will be granted over the total period from 2022-2027. This is equivalent to 400 projects.
