SMEs, micro-enterprises can access funds of over 29 million Euro to develop IT&C projects


More than 29 million Euro are available for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the field of information technology (IT & C) for the development of research and development projects under state-aid schemes, Minister of Communications and Information Society Bogdan Cojocaru told a news conference quoted by Agerpres.

"As we can see every day, the IT & C sector is on the rise, and we see its contribution to the formation of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), which is currently around 7 percent. Because we want to continue this trend, it is important to come up with business support measures, and we are doing that under state-aid schemes by encouraging entrepreneurs to invest at home. SMEs will be able to get funding for the development of innovative projects that have an effect on the industry as a whole. We had the opportunity to publish the funding rules for these state-aid schemes on October 16. We hope to secure European funding for projects with added value for IT & C. Funding will be provided under two aid schemes, namely a state-aid scheme and a de minimis aid scheme. The total budget we have is 94 million euros, of which about 29 million euros were made available for this first call. We want to finance such projects, because the required human resource exists in Romania," Cojocaru said.

He added that the total funding for Action 2.2.1 - Supporting an increase in the added value generated by the ICT sector and innovation through the development of clusters is 94 million euros and will be extended until 2020.

Of the budget allocated to the first call of this programme, 25 million euros (116,752,500 lei) come from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), and the rest from the national budget.
