Euratechnologies and its partners have just launched a second call for projects “Let’s Start IT”, dedicated to software with more than € 300,000 in funding. The initiative aims to encourage the creation of applications and services in the areas of software, the cloud as well as multimodal and ￼interoperable mobile solutions.
￼This organization also aims to promote the creation, development, establishment and growth of innovative companies in the software sector through financial support. A system reinforced by a real multidisciplinary support (legal advice, market studies, technological support, etc.).
￼￼The “Let’s Start IT” call for projects also supports companies in ￼their technological migration projects, taking into account the impact of the cloud ￼ on the software industry of tomorrow.
