Subsidy Consultancy

» Benefit from public subsidies and incentives

Companies interested in public funding to finance innovative projects face a variety of challenges: What suitable funding instruments are available? Which requirements must be fulfilled? How must the project be applied for? Can a consortium be formed? Do stakeholders need to be involved? To whom must the project be advertised in order to increase the chances of the application being successful?

CONCILIUS experts, specialized in funding issues, support you in identifying and applying for suitable programs from the European Union and the Federal Republic of Germany. Together with you, we align your project to the appropriate funding instruments in order to enter the race with maximum funding opportunities.

Once your grant application has been approved, CONCILIUS can handle the complex project management. This includes the regular reporting obligation, the preparation of a final report and the coordination of a consortium. But before going to deep, our funding experts check the likelihood of the project being eligible for funding. This allows you to focus your company's resources on projects promising success.

Naturally, funding can be more than a direct subsidy of cash resources. It can also be low-interest loans, quick approval procedures, tax savings or public support in the search for suitable sites. The CONCILIUS team will of course also support you in negotiating such funding instruments.
