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.
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.
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.
