2017 Power Breakfast on State Aid
February 09, 2017, HOTEL INTERCONTINENTAL, BUCHAREST

Govnet Conferences is organizing another exclusive Power Breakfast on State Aid, which will focus on practical aspects regarding the implementation of State Aid Schemes in Romania.

It is a great opportunity to get an overview and learn more about financing investments from non-reimbursable funds. Compared to the past, 2017 brings funding opportunities for SMEs investment projects of more than EUR 1 million.Your company can benefit from up to 70% cash reimbursement of such investments. In addition, the projects of more than EUR 10 million investment in assets are financed, as in the past, with up to 50% of the investment value, while labour intensive project creating at least 10 new working places can benefit from 50% of the salary costs for 2 consecutive years. The total budget of EUR 1.7 billion (EUR 925 million for scheme related to investment in assets , EUR 600 mil for salary costs and EUR 200 mil for SMEs projects) seems to be generous to that the chances to get non-reimbursable money for your projects is quite high. 


You have a great opportunity to find more about financing of investments from non-reimbursable funds directly from the people involved in the process: state aid representatives, representatives of companies that already benefited from state aid and consultants that assisted investment projects in the past.
