Users' Association

The Advanced Technologies Users' Association 
This incentive program allows joint activity of a group of industrial corporations as part of the Advanced Technologies Users' Association.

The main idea of the incentive program is based on the notion that “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” In other words, though cooperation the companies learn from the experience of each other, thus increasing their knowledge and skills.

Goal of the incentive program:
Distribution, implementation, and demonstration of technologies or sharing resources in a way that contributes to R&D in the fields of practice of the companies.

Who is the incentive program for?
Companies engaged in R&D and interested in collaboration in the distribution and implementation of new technologies.

What do you get?
The Association, as a legal entity, receives a grant of up to 66% of the approved expenses. The members of the Association complete this sum to 100% of the Association’s expenses. Companies do not receive any grants as part of this incentive program.

Why should you apply for this incentive program?
Cost-effectiveness: This is the most active incentive program. For a minimal budget worth one or two trips to conferences abroad, companies can be exposed to a wealth of available technology.

How to apply?
  1. Following coordination with the Head of the Division, a group of companies wishing to cooperate is organized. These companies submit a proper request for support to the Head of the Technological Infrastructure Division.
  2. The rest of the organizational process is similar to the MAGNET Consortiums incentive program.
