To involve additional SMEs in ELISE, we allocate a part of our budget as Financial Support for Third Parties (“cascade funding”) towards SMEs. This budget will be used to initiate micro-projects for developing novel services and applications of AI to the challenges defined by the project stakeholders.
ELISE academic partners will mentor the participating SMEs. Each project has a budget of up to 60 000 euros.
The application period for the second open call is now open until 16 February 2023. Applications for the funding are submitted via the FundingBox Platform
