Winnovart’s tips for this new funding cycle:

– Funding opportunities for the private sector will be less apparent than in the previous cycle when investments were clearly funded for increasing production capacity or purchasing tangible/intangible assets – the main interest for enterprises in the Romanian industry. Now the priority is innovation, thus in order to exploit these new opportunities, an approach will be needed that is strategic and more creative than in the past.

– The funding programmes encourage an international aspect to the projects by attracting international experts, as well as by giving EU-based enterprises direct access as applicants.

We gladly remain at your disposition for more information about these new funding programmes, as well as for identifying an approach to make use of them.

Recomandarea Winnovart in acest nou ciclu financiar:

– Solutiile de finantare nerambursabila pentru sectorul privat vor fi mai putin evidente decat in precedentul, cand se finantau in mod foarte clar investitii in capacitate de productie, ori achizitie de active corporale/ necorporale – principalul punct de interes al intreprinderilor din industria romaneasca. Acum prioritatea este inovarea, prin urmare, pentru valorificarea noilor oportunitati va fi necesara o abordare strategica si mai creativa decat in trecut.

– Programele de finantare incurajeaza o dimensiune internationala a proiectelor atat prin atragerea de experti internationali, cat si prin accesul direct al intreprinderilor din UE ca aplicanti.

Va stam la dispozitie pentru mai multe detalii si informatii despre aceste noi programe de finantare, precum si pentru identificarea unei abordari de valorificare a lor.
