Understanding Cascade Funding

Cascade funding is a unique financing approach that supports innovation and collaboration across various stages of project development. Also known as financial support to third parties (FSTP), is an instrument of the European Commission to distribute public funds and generate opportunities for SMEs, startups and/or mid-cap companies, in the adoption or development of digital technologies. It aims to nurture a collaborative ecosystem by encouraging knowledge sharing, idea cross-pollination, and fostering a dynamic network of innovators.
