Coming soonThe Guide to the Programme for Applied Research, aka The RUP, Rounds I–V (Rakendusuuringute programm, voorud I–V)

NextGenRnD® Solution No. 6

Programme for applied research (Rakendusuuringute programm or The RUP) is the unique hybrid of Eurostars and EIC Accelerator as it enables small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and large enterprises, registered in the Estonian business registry, to get access to public funding for their technology readiness level(TRL) 3 – 7 research and development (R&D) projects. Thus, The RUP fully includes the Eurostars and overlaps the earlier stages of EIC Accelerator hence providing the most value to the enterprises.

Here, we provide the analysis of 105 projects granted in Rounds I–V by The RUP – the programme driven by the Estonian Business and Innovation Agency (EASi ja KredExi ühendasutus). Moreover, we boost these RUP projects further by providing patent search results and a practical manual on how to exploit them.
