Business Finland provides Exhibition Explorer funding to support the participation to International Trade Fairs. Photonics Finland member companies benefits this funding when joining to Photonics Finland Pavilions at Photonics West and Laser World of Photonics. 

Exhibition Explorer funding has been reformed so that a maximum of EUR 15,000 (previously EUR 35,000) per trade fair project can be granted to a single company. Grants are awarded for up to 50% of eligible costs, which now applies not only to SMEs but also to midcap companies (previously for midcaps up to 40% of eligible costs).

The decrease in the maximum grant per project can be compensated for by companies joining forces and funding by participating in trade fairs at joint stands. Funding will continue to be granted both to separate stand or joint stands of companies.

The basic condition for granting funding will continue to be, with certain established exceptions, that at least four Finnish SMEs or midcap companies apply for Exhibition Explorer funding for the same trade fair. In the future, there will no longer be a minimum requirement for the number of SMEs in such a group.
