EIC calls for Pathfinder OPEN and Accelerator OPEN are now available. You can already apply for the 1st step of the Accelerator via the AI dedicated platform, and EFMC can stand by your side with a specific coaching scheme to succeed in this first challenging go/no-go step. If your disruptive innovation is still in an early development stage (below TRL4), you may fit for the Pathfinder. The successor of Future Emerging Technologies (FET-Open, FET Challenges), the pathfinder is for collaborative fundamental research aiming to the proof of principle (PoC). For Pathfinder, EFMC offers full proposal writing support, or a proposal review, to boost proposal competitiveness and maximize the chances of success.
EIT is where funding opportunities for SMEs, Large Companies, Public Bodies, Universities are embedded into the paradigm of the Innovation Ecosystem, and collaboration is established among members of the Knowledge Innovation Communities aiming at mutual support and collaboration for achieving long term objectives of innovation, start-up, scale-up, investment, entrepreneurial education. EFMC support potential new members of the KIC by supporting their application to become members of the Community.
