We would like to inform about open calls to FIWARE Accelerator Programme, which gives Polish SMEs, start-ups, students and scientists an opportunity to receive non-returnable EU grants for launching innovative apps.
The FIWARE Acceleration Programme is co-financed by European Commission and aims to create an ecosystem that supports Internet innovation in EU countries. Under the programme the FIWARE technologies were created, a set of ready-made, open-source functional components (APIs) for internet applications.
80 MILLION EURO IN FI-PPP OPEN CALLS
FIWARE technical infrastructure is available for SMEs, as well as individual innovators. These entities may obtain financing by taking part in open calls runned by the 16 accelerators that support businesses and innovators financially and provide them with know-how (mentoring, counseling). The total budget of FIWARE Accelerator Programme is 80 million euro. It is assumed that approx. 1,300 small projects across the EU will be supported.
