EIC Accelerator Open 2021

The EIC Accelerator supports the later stages of technology development as well as scale-up.


The technology component of your innovation must therefore have been tested and validated in a laboratory or other relevant environment (e.g. at least Technology Readiness Level 5/6 or higher). The EIC Accelerator looks to support companies where the EIC support will act as a catalyst to crowd in other investors necessary for the scaleup of the innovation.
