In the beginning of 2009, Innovayt was engaged by Central Denmark EU Office to assist in a project aimed at mobilising companies from Mid Jutland to participate in EU funding programmes for research and innovation. The i-Facilitator project was carried out throughout the year and more than 400 companies were identified as relevant to the programmes out of which 112 had concrete project ideas. Innovayt conducted meetings with all 112 companies and 65 ideas were evaluated to have the potential for EU funding. As a direct result of the i-Facilitator project, 11 EU applications were submitted; 7 were approved, and EU funding of 49 M DKK was granted for Central Denmark companies and institutions.
Innovayt continues the fruitful cooperation with Central Denmark EU Office in 2010 as the i-Facilitator II project has been launched to make an extra effort for project ideas which already have been identified and to encourage the offset of new ones.
