Would you like to organise an event to promote science to children, young people or the general public? Do you want to attract young people in Brussels to STEM fields of study and careers, or encourage a scientific culture in Brussels? Our SP-Event funding opportunity finances your temporary science promotion events such as exhibitions, competitions, shows, festivals, etc.

Are you eligible?

You have a company, a non-profit organisation or you are active in a research institute with at least one office in the Brussels-Capital Region

You have submitted your project on time. An application for an SP-Event subsidy must be submitted no later than July 15 for events taking place in the following calendar year.


Your project:

  • targets Brussels residents
  • through (one-time or recurring) events clearly defined in purpose and time
  • that raise awareness of science, technology, and/or innovation by:
    • attracting young people to STEM study domains and professions (category 1) or
    • stimulating a scientific culture among the general public (category 2)

You can find the eligibility criteria in the regulations in French or Dutch. .

The procedure in 4 steps:

  1. Submit your application using the form available at the bottom of this page. Send the completed form to Innoviris in PDF and DOC format via the following email address: funding-request@innoviris.brussels.
  2. After confirmation by Innoviris of the eligibility of your application, a jury will intra-collegially (peer-review) all eligible applications, according to the criteria defined in the regulations below.
  3. If your funding is awarded, you will receive the first instalment of your funding at the start of your project.
  4. At the end of your project, following the evaluation of your financial and activity report, you will receive the remainder of your funding.

Good to know:

The temporary nature of the events contrasts with the more continuous nature of the outreach activities financed under SP-PROGRAM.

Projects have a maximum duration of 1 year.

The funding covers up to 80% of the project cost.

This subsidy is awarded on the basis of European legislation on de minimis aid. As a beneficiary, you must ensure that the total amount of de minimis aid you receive does not exceed €300,000 over a period of three years.
