Subsidised Loans for Innovation

We can support your enterprise on its path of innovation with favourable conditions

Who they are aimed at

Innovation Start-ups, enterprises of any size, research centres with legal status.

How they work

With subsidised loans for innovation (Enterprise Revolving Fund), we provide medium-long term funding to support investments in research for your enterprise, in many areas (e.g. sustainable industry, digital agenda, supply chain agreements, social enterprises).

In collaboration with the banking system, we grant loans which can be subsidised by the relevant Ministries. The subsidised part normally covers 50% of the loan and reaches a maximum value of 90% for research, development and innovation programmes. The remainder of the loan is granted by a bank at the market rate. In addition, it is possible to request an additional grant from the relevant Ministry, which can cover up to 100% of eligible expenses. The duration of the loan cannot exceed 15 years, including the amortisation period.

For investments of at least 30 million euros, we can activate the partnership with the European Investment Bank (EIB), which enables the granting of pooled loans with the banking system, typically up to 50% of the eligible costs of the project.
