What is IraSME?

IraSME is a network of funding programmes from different countries aimed at providing small businesses with financial support to fund international innovative projects. Participation in an IraSME project allows SMEs and RTOs to build new partnerships, benefit from know-how and resources that might not be available in their country or region and get an insight into the market in other countries.

I am an SME. Is IraSME for me?

IraSME supports collaborative projects in the area of innovation. It requires at least two participants from two different countries, one being Luxembourg and the other either from Belgium, Turkey, Russia or the Alberta region Canada with complementary technical expertise needed to accomplish the project aim.

The next call for IraSME funding closes on 26th March 2020.
