EIT Digital 2019 Call for Proposals

The Annual Call for Innovation & Education Proposals for EIT Digital is open until 03 May 2018.

Proposals will be evaluated during June 2018. Impact and Sustainability will be important criteria.

Each activity is an entrepreneurial open innovation project between a few of EIT Digital's partners to typically turn research results into products targeted at a customer segment.  In an effort to bring more impact, an Innovation Activity proposal output belongs to one of three distinct types:

  • they aim at creating a startup/a spinoff,
  • they aim at launching a product or service
  • they aim at transferring a game-changing technology to reach the market.
     

DRAFT Proposal Tool, where you can draft ideas and find partners is available. In the matchmaking tab, you can specify what kind of partners you are looking for: business champion, technology provider, etc.

 The tool requires access to EIT Digital Intranet. You can register from here: https://workspaces.eitdigital.eu/SITE/PRIVATE/GO/login.aspx

Please note that all DRAFT Proposals are, by default, visible to all partners.
