Doing postgraduate research within the business world and looking for funding? Innovation Mandates is specifically intended for postgraduate researchers to carry out a project in close collaboration with an existing company on the one hand and with a view to setting up a new company on the other.
FI Group helps you with a clear project plan to make your ideas succeed and supports you with a strategy to secure the necessary funding.
The purpose of the grant is to finance the research project. The main goal of the research project is the economic valorisation of research and the further development of basic research to make the results applicable within companies.
In other words, projects whose risk level is still too high to already be carried out as an R&D project.
An application can be submitted by all holders of a doctoral degree. The scheme is therefore open to all nationalities and all fields of study/scientific disciplines.
In addition, all companies with legal personality and with an operating site in the Flemish Region can also apply for an Innovation Mandate.
Grant rate: the accepted budget is the basis for calculating the grant. The support rate depends on the type of mandate and phase.
An innovation mandate provides funding for personnel costs, operating costs, equipment costs and fixed costs in relation to one specific employee.
