Financial aid will be provided to SMEs facing obstacles in their innovation processes in one of the thematic and industrial areas of the VI Pilots. The VI Innovation Voucher will consist of a one-time, lump-sum payment of 11.000 to finance interregional collaboration activities between at least two legal entities (of which at least one SME) registered in at least two different VI regions and countries.

The initiative, which has been developed under the leadership of the Steinbeis 2i GmbH (Baden Württemberg), will allow the creation of success stories through interregional cooperation to showcase the potential VI impact on SMEs, but also strengthen SME- driven interregional value chains and promote faster market uptake of products and services.

Moreover, the VI is also supporting nanotechnology-related topics that are relevant to the NanoFabNet community. The topics are for example MEMS For Nano-AnalytiX Demo Case or nano-enabled microsystems for bioanalysis.
