From the idea to the product, we would be pleased to support you in your project with the following services and advise you on possibilities for funding at the state, federal and EU level as well as selected Commonwealth funding opportunities.
The development and management of national and international networks is part of our core business.
We have extensive know-how in the field of ZIM network and cluster management and support partner companies and scientific institutions to identify ideas and joint projects within our networks. Our network managers accompany the application for financing of innovation projects and ensure reporting and accounting to the project sponsors in compliance with the guidelines.
We also ensure a constant exchange between the participating companies and scientific cooperation partners at home and abroad.
Innovations are created from an interdisciplinary perspective
In 2018 we started to expand the international „T+I Circular Bioeconomy Cluster“ by adding three additional networks. The cluster gives network partners the opportunity to exchange interdisciplinary information with partners of the other networks within the framework of joint events. In addition, further innovation potentials and partners for the implementation of R&D activities can be identified.
ZIM (Zentrales Innovationsprogramm Mittelstand) is the most successful German funding program of the Federal Government in supporting innovative, medium-sized companies. ZIM pursues the goal of supporting unique advancements and the development of market-ready products in small and medium-sized companies. They promote individual, cooperation and network projects as well as services for market introduction. SMEs receive funding for up to 55% (national project) or 60% (international project) of their project costs while research institutions receive 100%. More information about ZIM
Within the framework of the „STARK“ funding guideline of the BMWi, T+I supports the transformation dynamics in Lusatia with the LuTraCo program with the aim of strengthening economically sustainable circular processes in agriculture and forestry as well as in water and food management.
The Marine Bioproducts Cooperation Research Center (MB-CRC) have been awarded $59 million from the Commonwealth over the next ten years. Together with partner cash and in-kind contributions, the MB-CRC partnership has $270 million to prosecute its exciting research, development, and commercialisation program to transform Australia’s marine bioproducts sector into a globally competitive industry.
MB CRC partners from industry and Universities and associated partners e.g. T+I (Germany) are involved in making the program a success.
The MB-CRC has been designed to provide the innovation foundation and organisational support for the marine bioproducts industry sector across the supply and value chain as it drives to become a major export earner for Australia over the next decade.
T+I is welcome you to send your interest on the MB CRC.
As part of our innovation and financing consulting, we identify current and future market and technology trends. Based on these, we derive the necessary innovation strategies and development priorities for interested SMEs in order to remain competitive in the future.
In order to meet the financial requirements, we work together with you, as the interested SME, to examine national and international funding and financing offers that are suitable for the implementation of the planned innovation and growth projects. This primarily concerns the funding offers of the BMWi within the framework of the ZIM guideline as well as other funding offers of the federal and state governments for innovation and growth projects. In addition, T+I can examine funding and financing offers from the EU and the Commonwealth for selected R&D projects.
Following the successful acquisition of R&D funding, T+I offers competent support in the administration of applications and in the accounting of the funding streams in accordance with the guidelines.
