The main problem, that “Innovoucher” wanted to tackle is, that SMEs didn’t have enough own resources to carry out innovative activities and to develop their services.The direct purposes of the project was supporting micro and small sized enterprises in innovative initiatives and motivate supply and demand in the field of innovation services.
Objectives of Innovoucher
Innovation calls for proposals were financed from the Innovation Fund. The National Office for Research and Technology (NORT) launched a call for R&D services in the regions for which SMEs could apply. Észak-Alföld Regional Development Agency acted as an intermediary.
One of the main interesting point of “Innovoucher” project, is how the projects, initiatives were financed.
The SME gets a 100 000 EUR virtual budget. The innovation service provider delivers the service for the SME. The invoice is sent directly to NORT with a short notice about the work done. NORT pays the bill directly to the service provider, till the SME’s budget is exhausted.
