1st pillar: EIP (1)- Access to finance


Itprovides risk capital for SMEs in their early stages (GIF1) and in their expansion phase (GIF2);

- SMEs innovative with high growth potential (also undertaking RTD)


It provides loans guarantees to encourage banks to make more debt finance available to

SMEs, including microcredit, by reducing the banks’ exposure to risk;

- SMEs carrying out high risk investments in technology development, innovation and technology

transfer or SMEs whose financial structure is weak

Pilot Market Replication Projects

Monica ibido earto

Summarizing: What CIP does and does not

  • It excludes research and technological development activities

  • It is complementary to Seventh Framework RTD Programme 2007-2013

  • It deals with non-technological as well as technological innovation that has moved beyond the final demonstration phase and is ready for market replication

  • It feels the financial gap between research development and innovation, by funding the transfer of research results to commercialisation, in coordination with FP7

  • It covers the market replication of existing technologies that are to be used in a new and innovative way

  • It complement the Structural Funds and other EU Programmes

Monica ibido earto

Summarizing: CIP main funding schemes

  • 1- Community financial instruments for SMEs

  • 2- Pilot and Market replication projects

  • Policy analysis, development, coordination, twinning, best practices

  • exchange, thematic networks

  • For 2 an 3 the basic principle of funding is co-financing (EC grants to projects

  • in certain percentage to cover the overall costs)

Monica ibido earto

How FP7 and CIP complement each other

  • Complementary and mutually reinforcing actions

  • Designed to operate side by side in support of Lisbon objectives

  • Close coordination

FP7: Dissemination of

knowledge and


activities (within projects)

CIP: Innovation support

networks and take-up

of proven technologies
