In 2018 we have set the wheels in motion. In the rise of 2019 we are happy to announce that five manufacturing SMEs have already started cooperating with KET Technology Centres (KET-TCs) in order to benefit from Key Enabling Technologies, thanks to their succesful application for micro grants by KET4CleanProduction.
In particular, the evaluation board of the micro grant proposals that were submitted during the first two cut-off dates, taking under consideration the excellence, impact and quality of implementation, gave the green light to 5 SMEs from Austria, Denmark, Hungary and Slovenia to receive micro grants of EUR 50.000. Each one of these SMEs is teaming up with 2 leading KET-TCs transnationally in order to conduct a 6-month long innovation project. The aim is to integrate key enabling technologies to solve clean production challenges, with focus on upgrading production processes.
Next cut-off date is January 31st, 2019. For more information regarding the Micro Grants process and eligibility criteria, visit: https://www.ket4sme.eu/micro-grants
