At the beginning of January 2023, the Ministry of Industry and Trade published the timetable of calls of the Operational Programme Technology and Applications for Competitiveness (OP TAC) for 2023. We have prepared an overview of the most anticipated grant opportunities.
One of the first calls announced this year will be the Virtual Enterprise – Call I. This programme can be used to support the area of information and communication technologies, in particular software and hardware, related to the significant shift in the digitalisation of society. The call is expected to be launched in Q1 2023.
In Q2 2023, we expect the announcement of calls in the area of renewable energy sources, intended for the support of the construction or modernisation of small hydropower plants or biomethane plants, including for applicants from the category of large enterprises.
Q3 will bring the grant calls for the area of circular economy and water saving, which will be available to small, medium and large enterprises with medium market capitalisation (up to 3,000 employees).
