This financial support to SMEs, managed by Innoviris (the Brussels Institute for Research and Innovation), provides a coverage of the costs for obtaining and validating patents coming out of R&D projects, whether they are financed by the Region or not (max intervention period of 3 years).
In order to benefit from this financial aid, the Brussels SME must develop all or some of its activities within the territory covered by the Brussels-Capital Region.
The rates of financial intervention in these expenses will vary depending on the size of the company, the maturity of the R&D project and the framework of the project:
|The application follows on from a project financed by Innoviris||The application does not follow on from a project financed by Innoviris|
|Industrial research (R)||Experimental development (D)||R or D|
|Micro enterprise/Small enterprise||70%||45%||45%|
The basic rate may be increased by 15% when the research from which the results come is carried out in cooperation with a research organisation. The rate of intervention is anyhow limited to 80%.
