European Innovation Council open call for startups
Startup Europe is an initiative of the European Commission that connects high tech startups, scaleups, investors, accelerators, corporate networks, universities, and the media.
It is supported by a portfolio of EU-funded projects and policy actions, such as the EU Startup Nation Standard, Innovation Radar, and the Digital Innovation and Scale-up Initiative (DISC).
Following the launch of the Horizon Europe 2021 open calls, the European Innovation Council (EIC) is seeking to build synergies with the EU startup community under the Startup Europe initiative, with a total budget of €6 million.
The actions will also target deep tech startups, not yet supported by the EIC, including startups that have already received private investment or EU funding.
The future cross-border projects are expected to contribute to:
- Increasing the market footprint of European startups in strategic digital technologies and deep tech innovation;
- Better connection of EIC-supported startups;
- Scaling up of capabilities in matching technology solutions developed by highly innovative EU-funded digital and deep tech startups.
