Information and communication technology; application for funding

The Free State of Bavaria supports companies in research and development projects in the field of digitalization and information and communication technology.

Description

Prerequisites

The R&D projects must be carried out in close cooperation between several companies or between companies and research institutions (joint projects). Several companies should cooperate along a value chain. At least two companies, including at least one medium-sized company and, if applicable, a university or non-university research institution, should be involved in a joint project.

Further requirements are

:
  • The implementation of the projects must be associated with a considerable technical and economic risk.
  • The projects must be characterized by a high degree of innovation, i.e. the technologies, products and processes to be developed must go beyond the state of the art in science and technology.
  • The essential parts of the projects must be carried out in Bavaria.
  • Applicants must already have relevant technical experience and specific research and development capacities at the time of application.
  • Applicants or project participants from the commercial sector must provide evidence that they are using an appropriate amount of their own or external funds to finance the project, which are not financed by other public aid or subsidized.
  • Cumulation with European Union funds or other state aid is only possible under the conditions of Art. 8 GBER.
  • Funding will not be provided for projects that have already begun before the responsible body receives a verifiable application and approves the start of the project, or for projects that are essentially carried out on behalf of third parties not involved in the collaborative project.
Please also refer to the funding guidelines (see "Legal basis").

Procedure

The application must be submitted in writing to the project management organization (see under "Responsible for you"), which prepares the basis for the decision. Approval is granted by the Bavarian State Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy.
