Cascade Funding: everything you need to know

webinar cascade funding

Cascade funding, also known as Financial Support to Third Parties, is a mechanism of the European Commission to distribute public funds in smaller amounts and in a more agile way. Its main objective is to support specific aspects such as the incorporation of novel technologies, promotion of start-ups, promotion of pioneering sectors, etc.

The main objective of this funding method is to simplify administrative procedures with the applicant entities, mostly SMEs and startups, thus allowing some projects funded by the European Union to publish, in turn, open calls for more funds.

Therefore, from Zabala Innovation in collaboration with our smart tool Kaila, we have organized a webinar to teach the keys to access these opportunities.
