But according to Realtid, Swedish IT companies are notable by their absence from the applications.
Two years ago there were 59 applications from Swedish organisations. In 2006 the number had fallen to 36, meaning that Swedish firms accounted for just two percent of all funding applications.
EU coordinator Federico Milani told Realtid that the lack of interest from Sweden is due to companies' belief that it is hard to get the money and not worth the effort of submitting an application.
