SME success stories on EU dual use funding

27 September 2017
ENDR team

SMEs that have successfully taken advantage of EU funding to develop dual use projects and thus their business are in the limelight of a new Commission publication. The brochure "Dual use technology in the EU" will become available in 7 languages to help SMEs understand how the different EU funding tools work. The main 3 EU funding instruments are showcased:
  • ESIF for technology transfers, prototyping, innovation uptake etc. – i.e. many of the steps that help a business diversify or migrate from one sector to another. 
  • Horizon 2020 for funding the civil application of projects with dual-use potential.
  • COSME for cooperation between clusters and for companies to build partnerships.
ENDR members may order free hard copies in any of the language versions (English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Spanish and Swedish) to use for their events by sending an e-mail to with the desired number of copies, the language version and the delivery address by 13 October 2017. Subject to availability, orders from other organisations could be considered. See the online version in English
