If the de minimis regulation is applied, the maximum investment for a three-year period is 200.000€ (app. DKK 1.5 mil). Under the de minimis regulation, salary is calculated based on a fixed rate of DKK 750 (app. 100€) per hour including overhead. Other costs are calculated as actual costs without overhead.

IFD strongly recommends all Danish enterprises to check their financial eligibility. It is recommended to use the financial viability checking tool developed for the Eurostars programme. The tool can be found here: https://viability.eurostars-eureka.eu/
  • The definition for SMEs and large companies follows the EU definition.
  • The state aid rules apply for the programme, including the definition of “an undertaking in difficulties”[2].

Business Finland – Finland

Specific national rules

The eligibility of a Finnish applicant is close to eligibility in national calls. Start-ups, SMEs, midcaps, big companies, universities, research organisations each have their specificities. The composition of the consortium (those from Finland) is crucial, and the applicants will be advised when they contact BF prior to submitting the application. Strong medium and midcap size company involvement is a must.

The Finnish applicants (members of applying consortia) are required to contact Business Finland one month before the Call Deadline. This will allow BF to commit fully and timely in the evaluation and labelling process.

National funding applications of the AI JOINT CALL are evaluated by Business Finland’s experts on technology, growth impact, management and financing.

Eligible costs and funding rates

Funding may be granted to all areas of technology and there is a continuous call. Business Finland meets the AI JOINT CALL’s timeline well. Good consortia can be funded with no specific Euro limit, with project lengths usually under 3 years

BF’s funding is intended for challenging and innovative research and development projects in SME companies, large companies, universities and research institutes. The main target group are SMEs seeking growth in internationalization. International cooperation and its impact should be visible. Companies should have a credible internationalization plan and real business goals including export targets.

Funding may be a grant or a low-interest loan, depending on the stage of the innovation and the nature of the proposed project. A project may also involve researcher mobility.

Additional documents required

Project partners that want to receive funding from Business Finland need to submit a national application, including a detailed project plan and budget. This applies to organisations with a business ID (Y-tunnus) in Finland.

The national application is submitted in the on-line service of Business Finland

Germany, BMBF, DLR Project Management Agency

Budget: tbd. after project selection

Specific national rules

BMBF funding is provided for pre-competitive, industrially driven R&D work by German sub-consortia within the framework of bilateral and multilateral European collaborative projects. The thematic priorities for funding are geared to the economic potential and fields of application or sectors in which innovations are largely driven by ICT in the area of Artificial Intelligence for software-intensive systems. Fields of application are Automotive, Mobility, Engineering, Automation, Health, Medical Technology, Logistics, Services, Energy and Environment.

Due to its complexity and its broad and highly demanding field of application, a broad-based research alliance is needed. The contribution to be made must therefore be the result of joint, transnational efforts by public institutions and private companies in Europe. Project consortia must be industry driven. The project outlines received are in competition with each other and will be evaluated in particular for excellence and application orientation.

Eligible costs

Project specific costs are eligible costs, e.g. costs for personnel, travel, materials, equipment or external development services.

Additional documents required

With the call deadline, each German sub-consortium must submit a six-page summary of the project proposal (including goals, tasks, exploitation plans, and funding budget) to the DLR Project Management Agency (language German).
