Service Description

If you are planning a process or organizational innovation in your company, your project may be eligible for funding.

For process and organizational innovation, you can apply for funding for suitable innovation consulting services as well as innovation support services provided by qualified external service companies. You can also apply for funding for the acquisition of the necessary instruments and equipment for process and organizational innovation.

Preference is given to projects that contribute to climate protection or adaptation to climate change (resource, material and energy efficiency, circular economy and CO2 reduction).


Process flow

Applications must be submitted to the WTSH prior to the start of a project and must be accompanied by verifiable documents that meet the requirements of the funding guidelines. The WTSH has provided the information, forms and digital access to the electronic application process required for the application and further processing on its website (www.wtsh.de).

It is recommended to have a consultation with the WTSH before submitting an application.

An application must be submitted before the start of the project and implementation may not begin without approval.

There is no legal entitlement to funding. Instead, applications are checked for eligibility on the basis of selection criteria. These are described in section 4.1 of the guidelines and are as follows

  • The project must demonstrate a sufficiently high degree of innovation,
  • Contribution of the project to the following objectives: Number of planned new jobs and economic potential through increased sales after the end of the project,
  • Contribution of the project to the objectives of sustainable development, equality, non-discrimination,
  • Contribution of the project to climate protection and adaptation to climate change.

The WTSH checks the application and requests any missing documents or information. Once a complete application has been submitted, the WTSH will decide whether to approve the funding.
