Horizon 2020 Cascade Funding Opportunities

Published on | 1 year ago

Programmes ICT   SME Instrument  

Cascade Funding, also known as Financial Support to Third Parties (FSTP), is a mechanism of the EC to distribute public funds in order to create new companies, increase their scalability, SMEs and / or mid-cap companies, in the adoption or development of digital innovation. Basically it are approachable funding calls that seldom require a consortium and are open to everyone. A very good entry point into the European Research & Innovation ecosystem! The main objective of this financing method is to simplify administrative procedures with SMEs, thus allowing some projects financed by the EU to issue, in turn, open calls to obtain more funding.
