RESIST Networking and Marketing activities Open Call
The RESIST ( REsilience through Sustainable processes and production for the European automotive InduSTry ) – Euroclusters project
Explanation of the call and its objectives
The goal of the RESIST (REsilience through Sustainable processes and production for the European automotive InduSTry) Euroclusters project open-call is to provide financial support to European SMEs, start-ups and/or mid-cap companies working in the Mobility, Transport and Automotive ecosystem (MTA) to develop more sustainable production tools leading to economic success and resilience improvement in the face of future market changes and crisis of the MTA.
The RESIST Eurocluster will provide cascade fundings to distribute public funds and generate opportunities for SMEs, start-ups and/or mid-cap companies working in the Mobility, Transport and Automotive ecosystem (MTA), in the adoption or development of digital technologies. The aim of this Call is to support the participation in international networking and marketing activities organised inside the European Union. The eligible activities are:
- The attendance to exhibitions (booth costs not included)
- The attendance to conferences and forums
- The participation in matchmaking events
- The participation in meetings with potential customers or suppliers
Only SMEs, start-ups and/or mid-cap companies from the Mobility, Transport and Automotive ecosystem will receive funding from RESIST.
This FSTP scheme can be used to finance the participation in networking and marketing activities taking place in EU countries (in a region other than of the applicant) from the launch of the open call and no later than 20 December 2024. Applications can be presented to finance the participation in upcoming activities. No retroactivity of costs is accepted, meaning that a grant cannot be used to cover costs of an action or activities that took place before the date of submission of the proposal.
Under this call, up to 45 FSTP schemes will be funded with a maximum funding of €250 per person in marketing activities and € 500 per person in networking activities. To receive the full payment, awarded applicants will be required to present their real costs, a report of the activity, as well as acknowledging on social media the EU funding awarded, including the #RESISTeurocluster, mentioning EISMEA and DG GROW links or hashtags
The maximum amount to be granted per applicant in the framework of the RESIST project shall not exceed €60,000 in total even in the case of multiple granted financial support scheme types (lump sums) to the applicant during the lifetime of the project.
