On the 15th January 2024, prospective applicants for the European Innovation Council (EIC) interested in the upcoming opportunities under the Work Programme 2024 are warmly invited to join this full-day online Info Day to learn about the available funding and learn about successes achieved under the previous work programmes.

High-level speakers from the EIC, SMEs Executive Agency (EISMEA), the Directorate-General for Research and Innovation (DG RTD) of the European Commission, and the European Investment Bank (EIB) will provide an overview about three main funding schemes provided by EIC:

-EIC Pathfinder: for advanced research on breakthrough or game-changing technologies;
-EIC Transition: for transforming research results into innovation opportunities;
-EIC Accelerator: for individual companies to develop and scale up breakthrough innovations with high risk and high impact.

Dedicated sessions will present the wide range of services (access to coaches, mentors, access to global partners & innovation ecosystem) offered to all EIC-funded projects and companies by the Business Acceleration Services (BAS) and the Lump Sums as a novelty from 2024 relevant for all schemes.

The event will conclude with an overview of the free of charge support that prospective applicants can get from their EIC National Contact Points (Access2EIC network) and their local Enterprise Europe Network (EEN2EIC network) advisers.

The following day (16th January), there will be a half-day Info Day dedicated to the EIC Accelerator Challenges under the Work Programme 2024 and reply to questions received from participants.
