Shape experimental development

 

 

The Shape programme enables the financing of experimental development projects.

Experimental development may be defined as the activity which targets the application of the results of industrial research in the form of prototype products, processes, or services, which may not be used for commercial purposes before the end of the project.

 

 

 

 

Your company may benefit from Shape aid if it fulfils the following conditions:

  • develop all or some of its activities within the territory covered by the Brussels-Capital Region

  • present an innovative experimental development project

  • show that the project is likely to have a favourable impact on the economy, employment and/or sustainable development of the Brussels-Capital Region

  • show one's ability to finance one's share in the project

  • have fulfilled its obligations in the context of previous support initiatives allocated by the Region.

 

Applications may be submitted to Innoviris at any time of the year using the form available in the French and Dutch version of the website.
