The results from the latest EIC (European Innovation Council) Transition Open and Challenges have been recently announced. 

Regarding the EIC Transition Open call, there has been a considerable increase in the number of applications received in this second cut-off (287 in contrast to 165 in the first 2022 cut-off). This represents an increase by 74%:

  • Applications came from 33 countries,
  • From 287 applications, 157 proposals were considered eligible (54.70%), and 27 projects have received funding (9.4% success rate),
  • €2.29M average EU grant.

In the case of the EIC Transition Challenges

  • Applications came from 19 countries,
  • From 51 applications received, 24 of them were eligible (47%) and 7 projects have received funding (13.72% success rate).
  • €2.49M average EU grant.

What is the EIC Transition programme?

The EIC Transition projects focus on results generated by EIC PathfinderFET (Future and Emerging Technologies) or European Research Council (ERC) Proof of Concept projects so as to further develop the technology and build a business case for specific applications. 

Grants of up to €2.5 million are  given to each project to validate and test technologies in application-relevant environments and develop market readiness (totaling €79.3M). Selected projects receive access to EIC Business Acceleration Services including coaching, mentoring, and partnering events. Projects are also eligible for the fast track scheme to access the EIC Accelerator for supporting the commercialisation and scale up phases.

Research teams, SMEs, spin outs and small consortia (up to 5 partners from different countries) are supported by the EIC Transition to mature and validate their novel technologies. This latest EIC Transition call included targeted funding for clean energy, green digital devices and RNA-based therapies and diagnostics for complex or rare genetic diseases technologies as well as open funding for any area of technology

The top four countries participants in the EIC Transition Open and the EIC Transition Challenges Calls are Spain, Italy, Germany and France. The table below shows the number of awarded projects per coordinator’s country:

12 out of the 34 approved applications (35%) have been submitted by an RTO as coordinators, that is, either by universities, institutes for research or research centers, while the remaining 22 applications have been submitted by a company as coordinator (65%).
