Interregional Innovation Investments Instrument (I3) Capacity Building Strand 2b

DEADLINE: 16 March 2023

The Interregional Innovation Investments Instrument (I3) creates linkages for interregional collaboration, bringing together actors from different EU regions investing in joint innovation projects along S3 priorities and close to the market.

The present call aims to test new approaches for increasing the capacity of regional innovation ecosystems in less developed regions to collaborate in EU value chains. Actions under this call will unlock the innovation potential of regional innovation ecosystem actors and will facilitate their participation in calls under the Interregional Innovation Investment Instrument (I3). For example, for the submission of proposals under the I3 Instrument Strands 1 and 2a. Actions shall also facilitate the cooperation between regions which want to develop and increase their capacity to participate in the Interregional Innovation Investments programme.

As output, Strand 2b projects refer to the concrete experimentation of new approaches, solutions and good practices to use for engaging in inter-regional innovation processes, mobilising ecosystems and in relation to SMEs. Projects are expected to deliver a pipeline of potential inter-regional investments as well as business and investment plans. The strengthening of the competitiveness and resilience of EU innovation systems will help Europe face societal and economic challenges, in particular, throughout the transition to a healthy planet and a new digital world.

The deadline is 16 March 2023, 17:00 (CET) and it is a single-stage call, with reference I3-2022-CAP2b.
