Cascade Funding, also known as Financial Support for Third Parties (FSTP), is a European Commission mechanism to distribute public funding in order to start-ups, scale-ups, SME and/or mid-caps, in the uptake or development of digital innovation.

This funding method aims at simplifying the administrative procedures, creating a light, SME-friendly application scheme, by allowing that some EU-funded projects may issue, in turn, open calls for further funding.

On Friday, Aug. 31st, IRSUS innovators (research teams, SMEs, spinoffs & start-ups on the EU’s Innovation Radar platform) will hear upcoming open calls:

  • Soft-Landing Missions by Sofia Esteves from F6S.
  • Synchronicity by Aline Bressans from Future Cities Catapult.
  • 5GINFIRE by Anastasius Gavras from Eurescom.
  • DIATOMIC by Maja Zikic from InoSens.

The webinar will last around 75 minutes including Cascade Funding basis, open calls and Q&A.
