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
The Commission has mobilised another €122 million from its research and innovation programme, Horizon 2020, for urgently needed research into the coronavirus. The new call for expressions of interest complements earlier actions to develop diagnostics, treatments and vaccines by strengthening capacity to manufacture and deploying readily available solutions in order to rapidly address the pressing needs. It will also improve understanding of behavioural and socio-economic impacts of the epidemic.
To respond to the urgency and ambition of the European Green Deal objectives, Horizon 2020 will soon launch a call worth close to €1 billion. R&I stakeholders can help shape the call by taking part in the surveys for each of the 11 areas.
The SMILE (Scalable Structured Micro-Illumination Light Engines) project succeeded in the 2019 FET-Proactive call. Its goal is to develop microLED platforms giving access to an enormous variety of novel applications.
The European Innovation Council (EIC) Accelerator Pilot will work with an extra €150 million to support game-changing innovations to tackle the coronavirus crisis. The additional budget, approved by the European Commission today, will fund the best start-ups and SMEs who applied under the March cut-off.
