How to combine federal and regional funding

05.02.2021 | 

It was long talked about and finally got on the road in 2020: The annual 50 Mio Euro committed by the federal government for the funding of games. A regulatory framework was established and communicated and first projects got their funding.

One thing was still to do: How can that funding be combined with then regional funding? And, dear friends that issue is now resolved. It is a clear „Yes we can“. The specifics on what is possible and what is not can be found in the FAQ provided by the federal government.

For all further questions you can also directly contact your regional fund or get in touch with us and we gladly point you in the right direction.
