50% funding for material efficiency projects without application

With effect from August 9, 2011, the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi) changed the funding of material efficiency analyses and projects for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Germany to BMWi innovation vouchers. Companies can redeem these vouchers to promote analyses to improve material efficiency. The BMWi then covers 50 % of the costs for the consultation by a consulting firm authorized by the BMWi.
On the website of the German material efficiency agency demea, you can check whether your company is eligible for such funding:
As an authorized consulting company in the field of material efficiency, A&K will in future be entitled to issue you directly with a so-called innovation voucher, which entitles you to a 50% subsidy. This means that you will no longer have to submit an application to the German Material Efficiency Agency!
The innovation voucher serves as a fully-fledged means of payment. The value of the voucher is up to €17,000 for a potential analysis and up to €80,000 for an in-depth consultation, less the value of the voucher for the potential analysis.
