Is my business eligible?

Support from the EU-funded SMART Innovation programme is available to eligible businesses in Wales who work in a range of sectors, including general manufacturing, engineering, energy, ICT, digital, electronics, medical/healthcare, construction and financial services. 

Read our criteria below to find out if your business is eligible for SMART Innovation support.

  • Most sectors are eligible for support from SMART Innovation but there are some limitations. Contact us here to have an initial discussion about eligibility.
