We are very pleased to receive 53 applications coming from 17 different  EU member countries and countries associated to the Single Market Programme.

  • Innovation Projects low-risk; TRL (Technology Readiness Level) 5-7; duration up to 12 months (25).


The applications focused on 3 sectors: Space, Information and Communication Technology and Aeronautics, addressing different market areas: software, energy, transportation, Internet of Things, manufacturing, hardware, cyber security and others.

We very much appreciate the SMEs’s strong interest in the call, ideas and engagement in bringing innovation to Aerospace and Defense SMEs!
