A new bridge between the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) & the European Innovation Council (EIC)

Starting year: 2023

Topics: Innovation, process/product development

Funding: European Commission

Duration: 2023-2025

EEN2EIC overall objective is to make EU innovation support more efficient by improving the capacity of SMEs to apply to the EIC and by helping Seal of Excellence (SoE) holders finance their projects and to avoid overlapping with NCPs activities.

The project aims to develop a strong cooperation mechanism between the European Innovation Council and EEN in order to support innovation and scale up companies. The focus of EEN2EIC is to empower EEN network offices to support potential EIC applicants, increasing the number of quality proposals to EIC calls with a specific focus in women-led enterprises, i.e. companies or start-ups in which at least one women is present in CxO level or equivalent (CEO, CTO, CFO, CSO etc).

EEN2EIC provides €1.300 (short proposal) and €2.400 (full proposal) for the EEN support of eligible companies applying for EIC Accelerator, complying with requirements.
