Marek Ostafil underlined the most important aspects of a successful application – grant applications must not only be a innovative technological ideas but must make business sense, they have to have a strong social impact on everyday life of people (in our case ELIoT Pro is a cybersecurity solution providing security of human users, data and devices for any IoT network), but also that the European Commission is the best investor that SME can dream of – business oriented, supportive with knowledge of coaches and a willingness and vision to invest in highly innovative, game-changing projects.
