Métropole Nice Côte d’Azur Calls for Submissions of Innovative Development Projects
Successful projects from innovative businesses will receive a grant of €30,000 to €80,000 from the Métropole Nice Côte d'Azur!
The Métropole Nice Côte d'Azur is pursuing an ambitious development policy to support the creation of new businesses and employment. In particular, it aims to promote the development of an ecosystem dedicated to innovation in the industrial sector, considered to be one of the strategic sectors of the region. To this end, the Metropolis is launching a call for projects to set up innovative industrial models in order to identify industrial companies with relevant initiatives and to experiment with promising projects.
The objective of this scheme is to meet the following challenges:
- Show the know-how and economic dynamism of the Métropole Nice Côte d'Azur by promoting products, innovative processes or their development by industrial companies.
- Enable the companies to benefit from increased visibility and to demonstrate the relevance of their innovative product or process.
Applications will be analysed by a selection committee composed of experts in the fields of industrial innovation. Priority will be given to projects in strategic sectors of the region, in particular eco industries, health, sustainable mobility, the sea economy and cultural and creative industries. In addition to the technical relevance and economic benefits of the project, its social and environmental impact will be part of the selection criteria.
The Métropole Nice Côte d'Azur will provide financial support of between €30,000 and €80,000 to the selected projects, depending on the complexity of the project and the economic impact of the model on the region, particularly in terms of job creation.
The call for projects is open, and applicants have until June 6 to submit their applications.
