Your company can receive public grants and subsidies at different stages of its operations. You can apply for grants for establishing your company, for making investments in your company and for the development of your company. Grants that you can apply for include research, expertise and innovation grants as well as subsidies for different types of experiments and trials. Usually, grants and subsidies do not need to be repaid, but they do often include a requirement for self-financing.
