Wallonia (DGO6) – Walloon Region

Do you have an innovative idea that can strengthen your business?

Experimental Development

The Walloon Region offers grants to support you in this researchThe “Experimental Development” projects, supported by the Research and Technological Development Department, are aiming at innovative companies with an operating headquarter in Wallonia that have innovative ideas but still have many challenges to overcome in order to effectively bring innovation to the market. If you still need to develop new technology, improve your process or your service, or go through a prototype or pilot phase, the Walloon Region will offer you support through a recoverable advance. When the project is carried out alone, the amount of the recoverable advance is between 35% and 55%. How much the Region will contribute depends on the size of your company. If a project is being carried out through an effective partnership, the contribution may be increased.

Industrial Research

Through the Department of Research and Technology Development, the Walloon Region supports companies that carry out “Industrial Research” projects by offering them subsidies. Such projects are those which involve cutting-edge research that carries an inherently high risk, which, over time, can lead to a revolutionary innovation. It therefore relates to the acquisition of fundamental knowledge in a certain field without any application being necessarily envisaged in the immediate future. The amount of the subsidy is between 30 and 70% and depends on the size of your company and the partnerships contemplated.

Our Added Value

  • Technical and financial knowledge for the preparation of the business case and technical work packages
  • Success ratio of 95%
  • A complete takeover of administrative formalities after receiving the subsidy
  • Matchmaking if you still need partners
  • Knowledge of European subsidies for subsidies following research and development; see European subsidies.
