Ways to go with your idea to the market
Give your innovation idea increased chances in planning and implementation an kick-off. Speed up your market transition with FFG's bottom-up funding. There are options for every phase of your research and development activities. Often, a combination of customized funding offers is useful to implement innovative and competitive activities or problem solutions.
In the bottom-up funding approach is the funding of research and development projects of companies without restriction to specific topics and technology fields. The project goal is a functioning product, process or service. Exploitation and potential market prospects play an important role in the funding decision.
For example: Choose Projekt.Start to prepare for the application for a General Programme-project and then optionally use a Markt.Start loan as a SE-startup to transition your products or services to the market (look up figure below). The Small Scale-project is designed for smaller project volumes and with Frontrunner, Microelectronics2Market and Life Sciences the focus is on climate and environmental protection and digitalization in healthcare, medical devices to drug development. Impact Innovation promotes the use of innovation methods to solve an (unsolved) problem.
