The Commission received 580 project proposals involving 785 SMEs by the first cut-off date of Horizon 2020’s SME Instrument programme Phase 2 (9 October 2014). Evaluation by independent experts showed that 132 of the proposals met the evaluation standard. 60 (45.45%) have been selected for funding.
UK companies have been particularly successful in this call, with 10 participants on track to receive over €17 million. They are closely followed by France, the Netherlands and Spain, which actually has the biggest number of single beneficiaries (12).
