SMEs directly

ILM’s main task is the technological support of companies. In addition to its general service and research proposals (→ Business Companies) ILM offers to small and medium enterprises a special assistance in raising funds for various programs:

  • Innovation vouchers from the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg and other states
  • "KMU innovativ” from the BMBF
  • The central innovation program for SMEs (ZIM) of the BMWi
  • Collaborative projects of the BMBF
  • (together with other small and large companies)


We help to develop ideas, to structure R & D work and to work them up for grant applications. Together with various partners, we can look back on a number of successful applications.

If you want to develop your business through optical technologies, with the ILM you will find a partner on equal terms.
