Call for Innovation Proposals 2021 (EIT Manufacturing)

Aalto EIT Services - Javor

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.
