The upcoming Horizon Europe EIC Accelerator
With a budget totalling €7 billion over the next seven years, and its unique blend of grant and equity investments, the fully-fledged EIC Accelerator is expected to be the largest funding programme for innovative Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) ever deployed by the European Commission. For-profit SMEs, including start-ups from any sector, can receive between €0.5 and €2.5 million in the form of grants, and an optional equity investment up to €15 million. The EIC Accelerator also provides coaching and mentoring to help businesses scale up and grow.
The first two cut-offs of the new programme are scheduled for June the 9th, and October the 6th.
Assess how your project fits the EIC Accelerator
During the webinar, Alien Technology Transfer’s President Arianna Tibuzzi has illustrated how to submit project ideas for a complimentary Funding Opportunity Assessment performed by the firm’s team of experts. The assessment will evaluate the project’s chances of success under the new scheme, identifying the optimal funding strategy.
