The European Innovation Council is willing to fund your project! On 21st October from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM, our European programme experts will conduct a webinar on funding opportunities offered from 2022 by this new programme.

A new programme to promote technological and breakthrough innovations

With a €10 billion budget for a 6-year time lapse, The European Innovation Council goals are:

  • Capitalizing on science, innovative EU SMEs and start-ups to be more competitive on global markets that are increasingly defined by new technologies;
  • Identifying, developing and spreading all kind of high-risk innovations by insisting on revolutionary solutions that create new commercial opportunities and high technology;
  • Making science a new market and stimulating development of game-changing innovators who shape the future.

A webinar to grasp every opportunity offered

Our webinar will help you evaluate offered opportunities more precisely and thus, optimally implement your project idea by providing better understanding of the EIC programme goals, approach, scope and participation rules.

At the end of the informative meeting, you will be given the chance to submit your proposal and receive a first feedback from the European programme experts conducting the webinar.
