The dynamic and innovation driven cleantech field proves that it is crucial to team up with highly knowledgeable partners in order to conduct ambitious innovation projects – partners who may be located outside your own country’s borders.
IraSME network members Luxinnovation and AiF Projekt GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) have teamed up with Cleantech Initiative Ostdeutschland (CIO, East German Cleantech Initiative) to organise a free virtual info session (18 May 2021) and pitching day (15 June 2021) targeted at cleantech companies based in Germany (SMEs) and Luxembourg which are interested in joint transnational innovation projects and looking for suitable R&D funding options as well as potential cooperation partners. German and Luxembourgian Research and technology organizations (RTOs) collaborating with SMEs are welcome to register as well.
We are pleased to announce that the Ambassador of Luxembourg to the Federal Republic of Germany, H.E. Jean Graff will give a short welcoming speech, joined by Ms. Carmen Heidecke, Head of the ZIM devision at the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
R&D funding and support is accessible through the IraSME network’s calls for proposals. German partners apply for funding within BMWi’s Central Innovation Programme for SMEs (ZIM) and Luxembourgish partners receive assistance from Luxinnovation.
The event will be held in German and English.
