The FET Innovation Launchpad scheme aims at turning results from FET-funded projects into genuine societal or economic innovations. The funded proposals are short individual or collaborative actions focused on the non-scientific aspects and the early stages of an innovation idea, stemming from ongoing or recently finished FET projects. The projects involve a wide range of actors, mostly from universities and research organisations, but also SMEs and industry partners, mostly start-up/spin-off companies. This info package will help interested parties to prepare their submission of proposals.
