The EIC Transition is one of the instruments of the EIC Work Programme. Single applicants such as SMEs, spin-offs, start-ups, research organizations, universities or consortia of max. 5 partners are eligible to apply to EIC Transition. Learn everything about EIC Transition.
Proposals must build on the results from EIC Pathfinder, FET Flagship calls or ERC Proof of Concept projects, either by including participants of those projects or by showing that you have access to the IP or the rights to further develop the technology. In general a Transition project aims to validate and demonstrate technology (in an application-relevant environment) and develop its market readiness. EIC Transition supports the maturation and validation of your novel technology in the lab and in relevant application environments (by making use of prototyping, formulation, models, user testing or other validation tests). As well as the development of a business case and business model towards the innovation’s future commercialization.
The expected result of a Transition project is that the applicant(s) are ready for the next stage, which can be to: apply for EIC Accelerator (for SMEs, including start-ups or spin-offs), seek other investors or sources of funding, enter licensing or collaboration agreements with third parties, or utilize other routes to market deployment. Additionally, projects funded through EIC Transition are eligible to submit an EIC Accelerator proposal via the Fast Track scheme.
In our EIC Transition Guide we have gathered all available information for you. We assembled the information on deadlines, budgets, consortia & more in a single guide. A must read if you’re looking for new funding opportunities for your research, R&D or commercialization project.
