For the second time this year, the European Commission, through the European Innovation Council (EIC), called for applications for the coveted EIC Accelerator funding. Exactly two months later, the results are in and the winners have been announced.
After the end of the controversial AI platform, the EIC Accelerator is returning to its roots: A Word-based template for all Step 2 applicants was recently published. What else is new? We give an overview.
In a statement today, the EIC announced that the AI platform is no longer accessible with immediate effect and the application process for the EIC Accelerator will therefore be moved back to the EU Funding & Tender Portal - with major consequences for the application structure, the upcoming deadline and Step 1 applications.
