Info-day Webinar “European Innovation Council Pilot: EIC Pathfinder and Accelerator 2020 calls”

22 April 2020 @ 09:30

22 April 2020

We are inviting you to join an Info-day Webinar on the topic “European Innovation Council Pilot: EIC Pathfinder and Accelerator 2020 calls”.

As several novelties have been introduced within the EIC Pilot Work Programme 2020 which reflect the new European Commission’s leadership priorities, the European Commission in conjunction with the Access2EIC National Contact Point Network is inviting you to join this webinar dedicated to the European Innovation Council Pilot 2020 calls for proposals.

The objective of the event is to provide up-to-date information on the content of the last Pathfinder and Accelerator calls under Horizon 2020 to potential applicants as well as information on support to the applicants available at both national and European levels.

The European Innovation Council Pilot aims at bringing together the cutting-edge research and innovation communities with innovative small and medium companies that are able to transform emerging technologies into products and services. The aim of the event is to build on the existing experience in order to bridge the gap between academia and industry.

The webinar is taking place on Wednesday 22 April 2020 via the platform Webex Events from 09:30 to 12:30.

The session (09:30-12:30) will focus on EIC Pathfinder programme, its relation to the EIC Accelerator and its evolution towards Horizon Europe, including tools and services dedicated to project proposers.

Due to the limited number of connections allowed by the platform, please note that participation is being ensured “on a first-come first-served basis”.

In order to have a smooth webinar, we would kindly ask you to join at 09:30 via a stable network connection.

We are looking forward to y our participation in this webinar.
