The Central Innovation Programme for SMEs (ZIM) is a funding programme of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi). ZIM was launched on 1 July 2008 and is the successor to the PRO INNO II programme.
The programme aims to sustainably support the innovative strength and competitiveness of small and medium-sized enterprises. Transparent and targeted funding with uniform funding conditions is offered.
Details on guidelines, funding examples and events can be found on the ZIM homepage. Next Vision GmbH has already successfully participated in the predecessor of the ZIM, the PRO INNO II. The growing challenges for companies in the area of constantly evolving business intelligence solutions make system integrators realise that innovative concepts are needed, especially in medium-sized companies, which meet the special requirements of SMEs.
