The projects, which succeeded in the FET Proactive Emerging Paradigms and Communities call (FETPROACT-EIC-07-2020), subtopic A: Artificial Intelligence for extended social interaction, have set a collaboration agreement to strengthen dissemination and impact of project results
ICT Research & Innovation
The immersive audio technology is developed by SONICOM, a new EIC Pathfinder project, which will revolutionize the way we interact socially within AR/VR environments and applications.
EXPERIENCE is a new Pathfinder project focused on virtual and augmented reality. With the help of artificial intelligence, it provides a yet-uncovered dimension of interpersonal communication.
CAROUSEL, a new Pathfinder project, paves the way for emergence of social- physical behaviour of digital characters by better understanding human body-language and being capable to interact autonomously with a group of people.
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 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
The Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Innovation LaunchPad call is open! Projects aiming to transform results from Pathfinder/FET funded projects into societal or economic innovations are sought for. 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
EIC Pathfinder Open: new deadline for submission of applications
The Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Innovation LaunchPad aims to turn results from FET funded projects into societal or economic innovations. Up to EUR 100.000 is available to support short actions focused on the non-scientific aspects and the early stages of turning a FET result into a genuine innovation with socio-economic impacts.
The European Commission has launched a competition to identify Europe's world-class innovators. The public is invited to vote for their favourite among 36 nominees from across Europe who have been developing innovations through EU-funded projects. The finalists include SMEs, universities and start-ups that are delivering a diverse set of scientific and technological breakthroughs. The public can vote online until 26 August 2019 at midday (12:00 CET).
How should the next EU research and innovation programme be implemented, to ensure that it achieves its ambitious objectives? Where can we simplify further? How should we deal with the novel features in the new programme? What should the legal documents, processes and tools for the programme look like? Share your views now with the European Commission.
The European Commission today announced how it will spend the last and biggest annual tranche - €11 billion - of the EU research and innovation funding programme Horizon 2020 in the final year of the programme.
The European Parliament endorsed today the provisional agreement reached by the co-legislators on Horizon Europe, the EU research and innovation programme for the next budget period from 2021 to 2027.
The European Commission is launching the first Horizon Impact Award – a prize dedicated to EU-funded projects whose results have created societal impact across Europe and beyond.
