Last Deadlines of cut-off:

  • 7 May 2019
  • 5 September 2019


All deadlines are at 17.00 Brussels local time


Activities can include, for example, risk assessment, market research, user involvement, analysis of regulatory constraints or standards regimes, intellectual property management, partner search, or feasibility assessment.


The goal in Phase 1 is to formulate a solid, high-potential innovation project with a European or global growth-oriented strategy. The proposal must be based on an initial business plan and outline the specifications of a more elaborate one, which will be the outcome of the project.


Phase 1 funding is a lump sum of €50 0000


Projects should last around 6 months.
