Each institution connected to the GARR network can propose research projects with a request for funding up to 30k euros and a duration of 5/6 months, with a possible extension up to 9 months. The projects can focus on any theme that falls within the activities of the research network community, for example in the areas of multimedia, networks, trust&identity, education, clouds, security, and privacy

The program has a total budget of 300k euros to support research projects proposed by universities, research institutions and other educational, scientific and cultural institutions that are part of the GÉANT community through their national research and education network. It is precisely from this program that innovative projects such as eduroam and eduMEET were born.

During the last edition, the GÉANT Innovation Program funded, among others, 3 projects from Italian organisations: University of L'Aquila, University of Rome Tor Vergata and Polytechnic University of Turin.
