The scheme is made up of four measures, and under the first two the government will extend direct grants and loans with zero interest rate to small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) that face liquidity shortages due to the coronavirus outbreak, the Commission said in a statement.

 

The direct grants and zero-interest loans will not exceed EUR 800,000 per company.

The other two measures will help enhance and accelerate R&D projects and the production of coronavirus-relevant products, with the government support taking the form of direct grants that will be open to companies of all sizes.
