Access to Finance

Finding Opportunities through Open Calls

The life cycle of companies consists of multiple phases, each with its own characteristics and needs. An understanding of the phase, that the company is being involved, as well as its surroundings, gives a better insight in the steps necessary to gain access to finance. These funds might either be the starting point to carry out new innovative projects or just evolve an existing technology.

The nZEB Smart Home includes a number of mechanisms to facilitate financing for partners, such as participation in funded collaborative projects, support to raise financing through innovation-specific instruments, and access to investors.

Funding mechanisms:

  • EU funding (e.g. Horizon 2020)
