IFDs Funding and Eligibility criteria for Danish participants

Funding of projects:

Innovation Fund Denmark (IFD) funds projects only if at least one Danish industrial partner is participating. IFD can fund all types of partners and encourage large enterprises, universities, research organisations as well as SME’s to participate in the call.

IFD can fund up to €300.000 to a Danish partner and up to €500.000 to all partners if there is more than one Danish partner in an application.

IFD asseses all projects with Danish partners. IFD will prioritize projects

  • demonstrating a clear benefit of the international cooperation to the Danish partners
  • having a significant impact on knowledge based growth and employment in Denmark

Please read more about the Danish funding rules here (link til General guidelines to International projects) .

Eligible costs and funding rates

De minimis funding (Optional): As an alternative to the above mentioned public investment under the General Block Exemption Regulations (GBER[1]), Danish enterprises can choose to be financed according to the European Commission’s de minimis regulation. 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’s funding rates for de minimis are 60% of the calculated cost for basic- and industrial research and 33% for experimental research activities.

IFD’s eligibility criteria:
  • A Danish enterprise participating in an international application must have a turnover of at least DKK 2 mio. Or, in the preceding financial year, have attracted an investment of at least DKK 500.000 or have an equity of at least the same amount.
  • Danish Start-up companies existing for less than 3 years, must document an ability to self- fund their part of the project not including other publicly funded projects, but considering that they also have to fund their share of such projects. 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:
  • 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].
  • Danish SMEs or “single undertakings” as defined in article 2.2 in the regulations for de minimis[3], can only participate in one application per call.
  • Partners funded by IFD must be registered as Danish legal entities, have economic activities in Denmark and the activities funded by IFD and EU must be conducted in Denmark.
  • Subcontracting must be clearly described in the application and in the budget overview or approved (using the formal change request format) by IFD.

Business Finland – Finland


The eligibility of a Finnish applicant is the same as 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 involvement of larger SMEs and midcap size companies 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.


Funding may be granted to all areas of technology and there is a continuous call. 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.


Project partners that want to receive funding from Business Finland need to submit a national application, if the project proposal gets the Eureka label. The consortium’s Finnish coordinator should agree with Business Finland about submitting the national funding applications, including a detailed project plan and budget. This applies to organisations with a business ID (Y-tunnus) in Finland.

When agreed with Business Finland, the national application is submitted in the on-line service

The programme indication shall be marked EUREKA AI JOINT CALL in the application form.

Germany, BMBF, DLR Project Management Agency

Budget: tbd.

Specific national rules

BMBF funding can be provided for excellent, innovative, 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).
