Call for startups and SMEs to apply for funding from the European Innovation Council to fight the Coronavirus with new technologies and innovations
The European Commission has published a call for startups and SMEs with technologies and innovations that could help in treating, testing or monitoring the current Coronavirus outbreak to apply urgently to the next round of funding from the European Innovation Council.
The deadline for applications to the EIC Accelerator is 17:00 on Wednesday 18 March (Brussels local time).
With a budget of €164m, this call is “bottom up”, meaning there are no predefined thematic priorities: applicants with Coronavirus relevant innovations will be evaluated in the same way as other applicants. Nevertheless, the Commission will look to fast track the awarding of EIC grants and blended finance (combining grant and equity investment) to Coronavirus relevant innovations, as well as to facilitate access to other funding and investment sources.
