How to build a Consortium?

IraSME - We Fund Innovation

Building a consortium

Generally build your consortium as small as possible and as big as necessary.

For most countries / regions the minimum consortium is two companies from two participating countries / regions. If a partner from Austria is involved the consortium has to contain at least 3 companies (research organisations do not count as companies) of which at least one has to be from Austria.

Research organisations are eligible as additional partners or as subcontractors depending on the rules of the corresponding country / region.

For further information visit the Countries /Regions page. We also offer help in finding partners for projects. Visit our next Partnering Event or see our Finding Partners page.
