Funding opportunities

The Free State of Bavaria offers a wide range of funding services for foreign investors. These include investment incentives for small, medium-sized and large companies. Regardless of their size, companies can also gain innovation funding for conducting research and development projects.

The range of products extends from non-repayable subsidies to low-interest loans and even the provision of guarantees.

As well as the funding programmes offered by Bavaria itself, companies based in the state can also benefit from German and EU funding programmes. The funding database of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy provides an overview of funding options offered by Germany and the Free State of Bavaria, while a summary of the latest information on EU programmes can be found on the website of the Bavarian State Ministry of Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology.

Based in Munich and Nuremberg, the "Haus der Forschung" provides initial advice on the Bavarian technology funding programmes and federal funding programmes, and brokers contact with the relevant project sponsor.
