R&D&I in an international consortium To promote cooperation and coordination between the various research and innovation programmes of the EU Member States and associated countries, the European Commission has a number of networks within H2020 that contribute to the realisation of the European Research Area (ERA). Through VLAIO's participation in these international networks, Flemish project partners can also receive grants directly from Flanders for their international cooperation on research, development and innovation (R&D&I). VLAIO uses its existing support programmes to provide funding for Flemish partners within these networks. Open Subsidies voor O&O&I in een internationaal consortium | VLAIO

Development project In realising this innovation - full of risks and challenges - you will need to acquire another piece of new knowledge. A challenging project, then, and to make it succeed you need extra finance. You can get those pennies through this development project grant. Our support can strengthen your growth plans, and maybe even accelerate them! Open Ontwikkelingsproject | VLAIO
Ecologiepremie+  Do you have plans to invest in a sustainable technology? If so, you may be eligible for an ecology premium+. This ecology premium is a financial allowance for companies investing in a technology included in this list (pdf version). The technologies match the themes of cooling, transport, lighting, heat and water. With the ecology premium, the Flemish government wants to encourage companies to organise their production process in an environmentally friendly and energy-efficient way.  Open Ecologiepremie+ | VLAIO
GREEN investment support Want to emit less CO2 and have lower energy bills? Then switch from fossil fuels to renewable energy, or electrify your business processes. Through GREEN investment support, VLAIO gives you a push to make these investments. Support is also available for investments in energy efficiency if they involve specific, innovative adjustments to your production process. Open GREEN investeringssteun | VLAIO
Strategic ecology support  With the strategic ecology support, the Flemish government wants to encourage SMEs and large enterprises to invest in technologies that cannot be standardised due to their unique company-specific nature and therefore do not appear on the limitative technology list of the classic ecology support scheme via the ecology premium+. These are large ecological investments (minimum 3 million euros accepted).  Open Strategische ecologiesteun | VLAIO
