New application template and new "Guide for Applicants" published for SME Instrument
The innovations result from the introduction of the mixed financing option (grants and capital).
The innovations result from the introduction of the mixed financing option (grants and capital). For this, the European Commission has created a completely new application template for the Accelerator (formerly SME Instrument Phase 2), which now consists of a total of four documents. The previous template for phase 2 of the SME instrument can not be used anymore. This also means that applications that you want to resubmit must be adapted to the new template.
The pattern for the new application template can be found here. You will receive a fillable version if you create a new Accelerator project in the Funding & Tenders Portal. You can see the "Guide for Applicants" here.
