In the first stage of the procedure, project outlines in German can be submitted online in digital form at any time to the commissioned BMBF project management organization via the online outline tool for the “KMU-innovativ: Produktionsforschung” funding measure on the www.kmu-innovativ.de Internet portal. The information needed to participate in the announcement is available there. Valuation dates are every six months, on April 15 and October 15.
The submission deadline is not considered a cut-off period. However, project outlines received late may not be considered by the specified deadlines.
