Join the HEI Initiative Info sessions on the Second Call for Proposals


The HEI Initiative aims to reinforce the competitiveness of Europe by strengthening the innovation and entrepreneurial capacity of HEIs and empowering them to become key actors in innovation ecosystems.

A Second Call for Proposals will be launched on 18 November 2021. We call for HEIs to create individualised action plans which take a long-term view toward innovation and entrepreneurial capacity. These action plans will be designed on the basis of an HEInnovate self-assessment for each HEI, in order to drive the choice of Actions proposed for funding and institutional change.

This webinar will consist of two topics:

  1. Eligibility, Evaluation and Administration: We will take you through the eligibility and pre-defined requirements in the Second Call, in order to clearly present what is expected and answer any questions you may have.
  2. Defining your Innovation Vision Action Plan – Orientations for a successful proposal: You will receive relevant information on how to best define your project’s vision and prepare an effective action plan to achieve the expected institutional change by unlocking the HEI innovation and entrepreneurship potential of a successful consortia.

This Info Session will present the HEI Initiative and Second Call for Proposals in more detail. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions to the HEI Initiative Team.
