#EITCrisisResponse - EIT Manufacturing: New Call for Proposals as a response to COVID-19 Crisis

Manufacturing vs COVID-19

Looking for fast-track projects addressing the pandemic & high potential start-ups, scale-ups and SMEs to support during the pandemic.

Today, EIT Manufacturing is launching a new Call for Proposals for:  

  • fast-track, high-impact projects directly tackling the pandemic.  Expected output: a clear product, service or solution ready to be out on the market by the end of 2020. 
  • venture support, including financial resources, for high impact and potential start-ups, scale-ups and SMEs to adapt to the new reality and accelerate recovery. Applications are expected directly from ventures.  Expected output: ensuring promising companies survive and accelerate their recovery from the pandemic.
Submit your proposal by 25 May 12:00 CEST

Proposals will be evaluated by independent expert evaluators. The most relevant and high-quality proposals will be proposed to the EIT for funding.

The implementation of all activities must take place between July and December 2020.
