The European Commission has selected 38 of Europe’s most promising start-ups and SMEs to receive funding of between €1 and €17 million to develop and scale up ground-breaking innovations in Europe. This is the last round of funding in the pilot phase of the European Innovation Council (EIC) Accelerator and it received over 4200 applications, the highest number ever.
The EIC Pathfinder project VISORSURF has developed planar materials with software-programmable electromagnetic behavior that will revolutionize wireless technology with an app.
A spin-off company, named Biomimetic, was newly created, implementing a technology invented within the FET /Pathfinder open project LiNabioFluid that was further developed thanks to the Innovation Launchpad funding given to the LaBionicS project.
Fifty-eight novel, high-impact technologies have been selected in the last round of investment from the European Innovation Council (EIC) ‘Pathfinder Open’ Pilot, funded under Horizon 2020, the EU research and innovation programme.
A very high number of applications received for the last EIC Innovation LaunchPad call under Horizon 2020.The results about the funded proposals will be released by the end of January 2021.

Count down has started for the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Innovation LaunchPad call closure on the 14th of October 2020!This call aims to to transform results from Pathfinder/FET funded projects into societal or economic innovations. A lump sum up to EUR 100.000 per project is available to support short actions focused on non-scientific aspects and on turning early stage Pathfinder results into a genuine innovation with socio-economic impacts.
The European Commission has announced the 10 projects to reach the final stage of the second edition of Horizon Impact Award – a prize dedicated to EU-funded projects whose results have created societal impact across Europe and beyond. The prize acknowledges and rewards the most influential and impactful project results under Horizon 2020, the EU research and innovation programme, and its predecessor, the 7th Framework programme (FP7, 2007-2013).
The new EIC Pathfinder presents the Science-towards-technology breakthrough live session on the 22nd September 2020. The session will offer an insight into the Pathfinder/FET programme within Horizon Europe, from a broad perspective with the participation of very relevant panellists.
We are ready to kick off the Future Tech Week from the 21st to the 25th of September 2020
