Research, innovation, and environmental protection are the driving forces behind major current changes. That is why national and European institutions set goals in this regard.

In order to incentivize businesses to undertake the necessary measures to realize these objectives, local governments and the European Commission allocate funds to provide financial support. This assistance comes in diverse forms, with grants being the predominant method of support with which we engage.
