EIC Transition: Mature a novel technology and develop a business case to bring it to market
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.
