Grants & subsidies: How to get public fundings

FI Group supports your R&D public funding research and helps deploying your strategies.


Public financing allows for a huge competitive advantage for entities involved, which goes beyond the financing of the project itself. It can allow for greater project scope or even contribute towards the shortening of production times. Furthermore, there are some aspects to consider.

Public financing can help facilitate collaborations between different entities, which increase the scope of the project and help establish and build lasting professional relationships. Nonetheless, these relationships can also increase project awareness in various sectors, helping to position the entity as benchmarks in their sectors. These public fundings are compatible with other schemes such as R&D Tax Credit, and shall be integrated in a global strategy.
