VITO actively supports SMEs with their requirements for innovation in all areas where VITO can offer knowledge and technology.  The SME team will put you in touch with VITO experts, guide you through the subsidy options and act as your one point of contact for all other aspects. SMEs and large companies will also be linked up as part of a unique co-creation programme, with the aim of working together to produce innovations. The SME team also organises regular open calls for consortium projects, in cooperation with other organisations.
