With a budget of €10 billion for the period of 2021 – 2027, the new European Innovation Council (EIC) is the key innovation of Horizon Europe. By supporting startups, SMEs and research teams, the new EIC aims to identify, develop and scale-up breakthrough technologies and disruptive innovations. Particular focus is given to projects supporting the goals of the Green Deal and the Recovery Plan for Europe.
The launch of the new European Innovation Council will take place online, on 18 and 19 March 2021. The first calls for applicants are planned to be released during this two-days event.
On the first day, the launch ceremony will be followed by sessions dedicated to the contribution of the EIC to the economic recovery of Europe. The second will be an ‘applicants’ day’, during which concrete information on how the EIC works, how to apply to the calls and who is eligible, as well as funding opportunities, will be provided to potential beneficiaries and interested stakeholders. The’ applicant’s day’ will be webstreamed here.
