Finding the Financial Resources for Your Project
Developing an ATMP costs a lot of money. Money that is hard to find. In addition, the number of ATMP projects requiring financial support is increasing. This makes the competition very tough and the investors extremely selective. Fortunately, the interest in the field of ATMP is growing. As a result, more money is being made available, especially in the public sector. But in order to obtain public funding for your project, it is essential to prepare yourself well, understand the subsidy requirements and start early with your subsidy application. This module gives some guidance on how to prepare and provides an overview of the European and Flemish subsidy opportunities for ATMP projects.
In this course, you will learn

- which European subsidy opportunities for ATMPs exist today;
- how VLAIO (Vlaams Agentschap Innoveren en Ondernemen) can help with regional funding.
