DFF/IRFD - de minimis declaration

Funding awarded by the research councils/fund to private enterprises must be granted in accordance with the current EU rules for state support (for further information, see for instance Statsstøttehåndbogen, published by the Danish Ministry of Business and Growth: Statsstøttehåndbogen). Funding by the councils is normally granted to private enterprises as so-called de minimis aid, cf. the Commission Regulation (EU) No. 1407/2013 of 18 December 2013 on the application of Articles 107 and 108 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union to de minimis aid, as published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 24 December, 2013.

The maximum amount that an enterprise may be awarded in de minimis aid over a 3-year period is €200,000 in total. If the applicant is a private enterprise, or if part of the support applied for is to be passed on to a co-applicant in the form of an enterprise, a de minimis aid declaration must be completed, signed and enclosed as an appendix to the application.
