STRIM is currently financing and has previously financed a large number of projects in a variety of areas. Most projects have started as a result of an open call for proposals. So far, six open calls have resulted in the initiation of 51 projects since the start of the programme in 2013.

In addition to the projects granted in the open calls, there are also strategic projects which have been initiated by the programme office.

All projects are presented below. You can filter on type and duration of the project and key words.
