How does it work?
To take advantage of the instrument, an application must be submitted to Invega. The list of consultants and consultation topics is published on the website of the Network of Business Consultants. The costs will be reimbursed after the receipt of the report from the Network of Business Consultants on the consultations received and paid for no later than by the end of the second month following the reporting calendar month.
How is the amount of reimbursement calculated?
An example of calculation: if the company received consultations on the Introduction of Eco-innovations, the amount of compensation is 85%; at the fixed rate of 54.70 EUR/h, the compensation to be paid for a consultation of 2 hours is: 2*54.70*85% = EUR 92.99.
