The EPICENTRE European project has received an impressive response in its first call for the participation of SMEs and Startups with more than 80 project proposals submitted by companies from all over Europe.

Financed by the European Union and coordinated by the Digital Cluster of Catalonia, EPICENTRE is an initiative that aims to address the challenges faced by large and medium-sized companies in the European area, providing effective and sustainable solutions. With a strong focus on collaboration and entrepreneurship, it seeks to promote the adoption of advanced technologies and foster cooperation between European companies from different sectors, with a clear vocation to stimulate innovation and business growth within the European framework.

The proposals presented in this first call, which opened at the end of March and remained open until last May 29, cover a wide range of business challenges that had previously been identified by the companies participating in the project. All of them, aimed at creating new cross-sectoral value chains in the Digital, Fintech, Health and Agri-food sectors.

With the first call closed, the evaluation period for the submitted proposals will now begin. Those 25 selected initiatives will become part of the Acceleration Program with which they will be able to obtain up to €42,400 for the development of the solution and the EPICENTRE Academy, with which they will receive training and mentoring up to €6,850.

The enthusiasm generated by this first call is testimony to the strong potential that SMEs and startups have to provide creative and disruptive solutions to today's business challenges. EPICENTRE is an opportunity for these companies to establish themselves as agents of change in the European economy, promoting competitiveness and sustainable growth.
