Important Projects of Common European Interest (IPCEI) are strategic instruments for the implementation of the European Union (EU) Industrial Strategy. They materialize in large-scale consortia aimed at Research and Development and the first industrial applications in strategic value chains. Considering the common and strategic interest, the projects included in IPCEI are subject to a notification process to the European Commission aimed at exempting the application of the limits underlying the regulation of state aid.
In Portugal, this measure is promoted by ANI in partnership with IAPMEI. It is aimed at projects in any economic sector involving more than one Member State, with the potential to create growth and employment, foster competitiveness and sustainability, and create value across the EU. In order to be eligible, projects must be co-financed by beneficiaries, ensure common benefits, and demonstrate their innovative capacity and high added value.
We will contact you to check if you are eligible for this instrument.
