Grants for different phases and objectives 

There are numerous grant schemes for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Examples include grants for looking into the feasibility of ideas. But there are also grants to support innovative developments, to strengthen your competitive position or the cooperation between the business community, knowledge institutions, and government institutes. The most important thing is to find the grant that meets your needs.

Grants for an idea, innovation, or to strengthen your competitive position

LIOF has several grants of its own.

One of them is for grants for looking into the feasibility of ideas. But we also have grants to support innovative developments or to strengthen your competitive position. They are available within one of LIOF's three focus sectors, Agri-food, industry, and logistics.
