Our partner companies contribute to Imagine’s mission as a research institution by funding high-tech equipment, individual research programs, research chairs and teams.

In return, our sponsors get priority information on our scientific advances, receive invitations to exclusive meetings with researchers and to the conferences we organize. They also gain visibility through recognition on our donor wall and in communications materials, or by having spaces named for them.

The Imagine Institute is a Scientific Cooperation Foundation.This means that companies that sponsor our work through donations can claim corporation tax relief of 60% of the amount donated to Imagine, capped at either €10,000 or 0.5% of pre-tax revenue. If their donation is over the limit, then the surplus can be carried forward and spread over five fiscal years.

Other forms of corporate sponsorship also exist:

  • In-kind sponsorship: a company donates material goods to meet a specific need. In this case, 60% tax relief is applied to the value of the asset according to its inventory value or cost price, and not the sale price.
  • Corporate volunteering: companies lend the expertise of their staff during working hours for specific or general tasks. The tax relief is 60% of pay (including payroll charges) pro rata to the hours worked, capped at 0.5% of annual pre-tax revenue. If their donation is over the limit, then the surplus can be carried forward and spread over five fiscal years.
