Call for Innovation Proposals 2021 (EIT Manufacturing)

The EIT Manufacturing community is looking for Innovation Activities with high potential. Proposers should focus on products and services with real economic, environmental, and societal impacts.

Principles for Innovation Projects financed by the EIT

  • Each innovation project should lead to clear outputs: new products/services/ processes, or startups, contributing to the Innovation Community’s strategic objectives;
  • Each innovation project should have a clear commercialisation strategy of the project outputs, indicating close cooperation with the customers/citizens, potential financial returns from the project and potential contribution of the project towards achieving the Innovation Community’s financial sustainability;
  • Projects should clearly state the knowledge and technologies the solution builds on;
  • EIT Manufacturing innovation projects are not appropriate to develop new fundamental knowledge, but to help to bring technologies and knowledge to market;
  • The creation of guidelines or similar documents are not valid outputs for innovation projects
  • The inclusion of partners solely for dissemination or project management purposes should only be done exceptionally and if justified by unique elements brought by the partner in those domains;
  • The value-added of the EIT Manufacturing partnership should be made clear (relative to the partners engaging with each other directly) – this is especially important in cases where both technology and end users are located in the same place.
