Access2EIC Publish Annotated Proposal Template for EIC Accelerator and the EIC Infoday Recordings

The Access2EIC project have developed a Annotated proposal template for the SME focused EIC Accelerator

The EIC Accelerator (previously know as SME Instrument) is part of the European Innovation Council (EIC) pilot that supports top-class innovators, entrepreneurs, small companies and scientists with funding opportunities and acceleration services.

You can find out more about the project and download the template at the website 

The authors of this guide are Horizon 2020 NCPs who interact regularly with applicants for the EIC Accelerator. In the document, their recommendations appear as “expert recommendations” and include feedback from both the EIC Accelerator evaluators employed by the European Commission and from beneficiaries who have been awarded an EIC Accelerator grant. The guide also comprises the evaluators’ evaluation criteria for the EIC Accelerator.

Access2EIC also hosted a new webinar / info day on the 22nd April  “European Innovation Council Pilot: EIC Pathfinder and Accelerator 2020 calls”. The slides and audio from the webinar are now available on
