Leyton helps you optimise your performance with the right funding for your projects

CENTRAL INNOVATION PROGRAM FOR SMEs

WHAT DOES “ZIM” MEAN?

Thanks to its Central Innovation Programme for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (ZIM), the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs supports Energy market-oriented technological research and development projects in innovative medium-sized businesses in Germany. The programme aims at sustainably supporting the innovative strength and competitiveness of businesses.

The guideline for the Central Innovation Programme for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (ZIM) will be replaced in early 2020 by a modernised directive that contains various improvements. This also entails a new call for proposals from the ZIM project sponsorship, which is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2020 and will then allow applications to be processed under the updated ZIM funding conditions.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

Companies and cooperating research institutions can receive grants for sophisticated research and development projects as part of the ZIM. Funding is possible in all fields of technology. Companies are also free to choose a topic. The innovation content and good market exploitation opportunities of the projects are important for the promise of funding from the ZIM.
