About this programme

It supports all stages of innovation from R&D on the scientific underpinnings of breakthrough technologies, to validation and demonstration of breakthrough technologies and innovations to meet real world needs, to the development and scaling up of start-ups and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

The funding and support consists of three main funding schemes:

  • the EIC Pathfinder for advanced research to develop the scientific basis to underpin breakthrough technologies (NCP
  • the EIC Transition to validate technologies and develop business plans for specific applications
  • the EIC Accelerator to support companies (SMEs, start-ups, spin-outs and in exceptional cases small mid-caps) to bring their innovations to market and scale up.

In each case, the direct financial support to innovators is augmented with access to a range of Business Acceleration Services. The majority of funding will be awarded through open calls with no predefined thematic priorities.
