Financing your innovative projects
Launching an innovative product is generally long and expensive. Did you know that your innovation, your Research and Development (R&D) activities and patent costs can be financed through various grants and assistance?
The PTR (Prestation Technologique Réseau – financing aid for IT projects) is financial assistance provided by BPI France, for SMEs that initiate an approach to innovation that involves working with an external competence center such as our cabinet.
The Investment Tax Credit (ITC) program is a tax measure reserved for SMEs. The latter can benefit from a tax credit of 20% of the expenses required to design prototypes or pilot installations of a product. In order to be eligible, the product must have superior performance from a technical standpoint, features, ergonomics or eco-design with respect to existing products.
The Research Tax Credit (Crédit d’Impôt Recherche or “CIR” in French) is a tax measure that allows companies to finance their R&D and innovation projects. To be eligible, the project has to push the state of the art further, i.e. the scientific and technical knowledge available at the beginning of the work.
