Innovation broker scheme

An innovation broker can contribute ideas to SMEs who want to innovate within the mission-driven top sectors and innovation policy. They can contribute ideas about, for example, the process, the content, the network and the financing of projects. They do this by organising innovation sessions, by 1-on-1 guidance or by guiding you through a validation process.

The deployment of the innovation broker must fit within the KIA Resilience and focuses on innovation of products, processes or services that address one of the social challenges.
