The development of new drugs and diagnostics is very costly and have a high development risk. Biotech and medtech companies need sufficient financial resources to balance risk and increase success.

Develop your funding strategy with dilutive and non-dilutive funding

It’s critical to develop an effective non-dilutive funding strategy using various an optimal mix of funding sources of national and international subsidies, banks, science - venture capital, disease foundations and tax incentives. This enables companies to accelerate their R&D process and balance risk.

We support companies with access to finance for:

  • Pre-clinical development
  • Proof of Concept studies
  • Diagnostic development
  • Clinical trials
  • Validation studies
  • Large collaborative Horizon2020 projects
  • Fundamental research

What grants are there for life science SMEs?

There are many non-dilutive funding opportunities for SME’s in different phases of research and development, such as Horizon 2020 and Eurostars. Excellent science, competitive industries and tackling societal challenges are at the top of the agenda. In the future, more emphasis will be placed on innovation and there will be an increased amount of funding available for small and medium enterprises (SMEs).

You can find a summary of the grant opportunities in our subsidies page.
