The services of the Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Centre AIRE (AIRE) are targeted at small to medium-sized industrial enterprises (SMEs), with up to 499 employees and a turnover of up to €100 million. We can provide a limited service (up to 10% of clients) to large local companies in Estonia (up to 2999 employees). In the case of a large local company belonging to a multinational group, the numbers of the group are aggregated worldwide.
Industrial companies can find various subsidies on their own, but finding a suitable one among them is often difficult – that’s why AIRE has decided to start offering a financial consulting service. AIRE cooperates with the Enterprise Development Foundation (EAS), the Estonian Research Agency (ETAG), the European Commission (EC) and the Enterprise Europe (EEN) network in order to map the idea of a specific company’s artificial intelligence and robotics developments and direct the company to the right funder.
A prerequisite for receiving AIRE services is also the completion of IMECC OÜ’s digital maturity consultation, and the accounting of the services will be recorded as the use of VTA (minor aid). The amount of VTA for the financing advisory service is 800 EUR. The one-time VAT rate for the AIRE digital maturity consulting service is 600 EUR. During the AIRE project, the company’s digital maturity consulting is carried out once a year during a three-year period.
