EIC beneficiaries will engage closely with mentors and experts from leading corporates during personalised mentoring and coaching sessions. This invaluable support is further enhanced by networking activities with key industry players and grants aimed at solidifying the business plan. The programme specifically targets beneficiaries in the automotive, food, bio-economy, sustainability, and aerospace value chains. With a minimun duration of 4 months and a maximum duration of 2 years, our programme ensures a strategic and sustained approach to business growth. Selected innovators may qualify for grants ranging from €25000 to €60000, contingent on the specific sector they operate in. Multiple calls for applications will be announced throughout the year, with one dedicated to each targeted sector.
