High-tech systems and materials & IT

The keystone of innovation

Europe holds a leading global position regarding innovation in the high-tech systems and materials sector. As an entrepreneur in the manufacturing industry, you develop ground-breaking products and essential, high-value intermediate goods that are exported around the world. To stimulate these developments, many grants and funding opportunities are available for the machine construction, smart mobility, metal, electronics and agritech sectors.

The high-tech sector uses information technology to create solutions that build support for change. EU funding programmes support software development and new business models in the areas of monitoring and control, (mobile) apps, big data and (embedded) software. IT is playing an increasingly important role in our lives and is the basis for many developments.

Our consultants each have their own specific area of expertise. Their specialist knowledge of your industry enables them to identify relevant funding opportunities and provide proactive, personal support. This will allow you to take full advantage of the opportunities available to your business.
