142 SMEs from 23 countries have been selected in the latest round of Horizon 2020 SME Instrument Phase 1. For each project, the participants will receive €50,000 to finance feasibility studies. They can also request up to three days of business coaching.

The European Commission received 2,029 proposals under Phase 1 by the second cut-off date of 2015 on 17 June. 342 received an evaluation score above the application threshold and 128 or 37,4 % have been selected for funding.

Italian SMEs have been particularly successful with 35 beneficiaries accepted for funding, followed by firms from Spain (29) and the UK (22). Since the launch of the programme on 1st January 2014, 958 SMEs have been selected under Phase 1 of the SME Instrument.

    Dear all, do you any statistics about the number or the relative percentage of the startup of the overall beneficiaries?

    Thank You.

    Hello,

    We cannot provide any statistics on that since there is no single definition for Start-up so it would be difficult to say. But you can have a look at these figures based on size in terms of employment and age of funded SMEs. It may be helpful.

    Hello,

    Can you provide the statistics for successful proposals per topic (including % funded above threshold)? Thank-you!

    We don't provide this data as it varies according to the topic, the cut-off date and the budget available.
