Bavaria supports medium-sized companies in projects to develop technologically new or significantly improved products, processes and knowledge services, as well as in projects applying new technologies in companies. In addition, in exceptional cases, technical feasibility studies for the preparation of development projects can be funded. The overall aim is to maintain the competitiveness of the Bavarian economy, and thus to ensure adequate economic growth and high employment. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with worldwide not more than 400 employees can receive funding. To apply for funding, the enterprise must have at least a subsidiary in Bavaria.
As in most German support measures at the regional level, this particular measure was not evaluated. Reliable information on its actual effects is therefore available to a very limited extent. Additionally, there is very little information available on the effects of similar measures in other regional contexts. Consequently, it is not possible to give other than an anecdotal assessment of the outcomes.
Based on the limited availability of information described above, no reliable recommendations can be given.
