Funding Opportunities


In June, the Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) conducted an Informational Day to present the European network of research and innovation centres and hubs – ENRICH. The network is created and governed by the Regional centre for information and scientific development (RCISD), Budapest.

ENRICH encourages and facilitates the cooperation in the fields of scientific research, technologies and entrepreneurship between the members of the EU and the USA, Brazil, and China. It supports the creation of innovations and their commercialisation.

Find the presentations from the Informational Day at the links here. The programmes offered by the network on the markets of the USA, Brazil and China are accessible here.


Small and medium-sized enterprises can apply for funding and methodological help of up to 100 000 euro provided by TETRAMAX project. The grants are for companies that develop digital technologies and services, already have international partners and are looking for Technology Transfer opportunities. The entire budget of the project is 7 million euro. The Bulgarian partner of the project is AMG Technology Ltd.

In order to apply for funding in the upcoming open sessions, companies need to have at least one partner from outside of Bulgaria with the status of a scientific organisation, a university or SME. Companies that wish to apply for grants, have to choose the grant scheme that best corresponds to their particular business needs and to submit a project proposal in English.
