Service description
6-month acceleration programme that aims to provide non-dilutive funding to EIC Pathfinder and EIC Transition beneficiaries who have applied and been selected through an independent competitive selection process with a Selection Board of currently 7 representatives from various relevant areas in the AMR sector. In addition, INCATE provides experience-based advice on all levels to help beneficiaries in their fundraising journey. EIC beneficiaries that are accepted to participate in this service will get an initial financial support (up to €10 thousand). INCATE’s experts will give support on business development, scientific development support and guidance on potential funding sources. This combined advice is particularly valuable to elaborate a sustainable business strategy and a competitive Target Product Profile. Those technologies that are considered pursuable and hold promise to gain a desirable profile throughout the acceleration process, will have the opportunity to take part in an upcoming competition, where they can be financially supported with up to €250 thousand.
