Aid for technical feasibility studies
The very small, small and medium companies (VSCs and SMEs) can receive help from the region to carry out technical feasibility studies prior to the launch of an industrial or experimental development project.
To be able to benefit from this measure, these studies must be conferred to a third party, whether this is a consultant or a specialist organisation (university, high school, collective research centre). This consultant or specialist organisation must be able to demonstrate that they have exercised their activities for at least two years and that they have the essential skills to take charge of said studies.
The intervention of the region in these technical feasibility studies can cover a maximum of:
- 75% of admissible expenses in case of studies prior to an industrial research project;
- 50% of admissible expenses in case of studies prior to an experimental development project;
However, this intervention is capped at €125,000 per project.
