European Innovation Council Pathfinder and Transition calls Info session - 5 May 2021 - 13.30h-15.30h
Under the European Innovation Council (EIC) Pathfinder and Transition schemes there are Open calls and Challenge driven calls. Under Open calls any topic can be submitted (thus bottom-up), under the Challenges topics are prescribed. The Pathfinder Open is for consortia of at least 3 different independent legal entities (e.g. universities, research organisations, industry and SMEs) in at least 3 eligible countries. The Pathfinder Challenges are for single entities or small consortia. Grants go up to 3 million Euro (Open) or 4 million Euro (Challenges).
The EIC Transition is for SMEs, spin-offs, start-ups, research organisations and universities applying either individually or in small consortia from 2 to 5 partners. Proposals must build upon results from ERC Proof of Concept projects, Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) or EIC Pathfinder projects. Grants go up to 2.5 million Euro. Details can be found in the EIC work programme 2021.

The EIC Pathfinder and Transition calls will be presented by Bart Van Caenegem, Head of Sector EIC Challenge-based Pathfinder of the European Innovation Council and SMEs Executive Agency (EISMEA) and the testimony by professor Marc Elskens of the laboratory for Analytical, Environmental and Geo-Chemistry of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB-AMGC).
