Public call: INNOVATION VOUCHERS for SMEs worth RSD 117 million
The Innovation Fund has announced a public call for small and medium-sized enterprises that need the services of scientific research organizations inviting them to apply for innovation vouchers.
The amount of RSD 117 million has been earmarked for those purposes, and companies can use the innovation voucher to solve a technical/technological problem they encounter in their business, i.e. to transfer scientific, technological or innovative services that are new to them, it is posted on the Fund’s website.
The innovation voucher finances up to 60 percent of the total costs of services, up to a maximum of RSD 800,000, not including value added tax. A single applicant can be granted up to two innovation vouchers, in the maximum amount of RSD 1.2 million. An approved innovation voucher must be used within six months.
Innovation vouchers are awarded in the order of applications received, within seven days from the date of submission of the application.
Applications are submitted through the Fund’s portal. The public call for the allocation of innovation vouchers will be open until the allocated funds amounting to RSD 117 million are spent and they are provided within the budget of the Republic of Serbia, from the section of the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development.
