Initially, it was planned that companies would be able to submit their full proposals to the EIC Accelerator by four deadlines in the new year. However, the first deadline on 12 January has now been cancelled.
The EIC will now officially launch on 18th March 2021. With a budget of 10 billion €, the European Innovation Council (EIC) is a central element of Horizon Europe and the most ambitious innovation initiative in Europe.
SONOTEC has been funded with its project "E-Saving Ultrasonics" by the EU and has successfully made the step into the market. The ultrasonic technology enables manufacturing companies to identify worn machine parts and leaks in compressed air systems, thus reducing energy waste.
The plans for the EIC Accelerator 2021 are slowly taking shape, with first information now indicating that full proposals can be submitted as early as 9 June. This means that the portal for submitting outlines could be launched already in spring.
EurA is part of the European Association of Innovation Consultants (EAIC). It brings together the most important European companies in the field of innovation consultancy to strengthen competitiveness in the research and innovation ecosystem.
The last EIC accelerator deadline under Horizon 2020 has received a record number of applications. The EIC Accelerator interviews will take place online and have been postponed to 26 November - 4 December.
