R&I Grant Scheme 2022
The scheme also underwent some structural changes. The most noticeable change being the change in TRL level requirement, as this time round benefitting projects are to reach TRL level 7 by the end of the scheme. Beneficiaries are required to produce a prototype or model operating in a suitable environment.
Such a change was actioned in order to demonstrate better what Research & Innovation can lead to and why R&I is a necessary tool to achieve sustainability. Another noticeable change was the increase in budget, where as previous calls, the maximum amount of funding a project can apply for was of €120,000, for this call, the budget has increased to a maximum of €200,000. Applicants were also bound to submit applications as a consortium.
