The EIC Corporate Programme bridges the gap between EIC-funded companies and large corporates so they collaborate and develop new business models and opportunities. 

The EIC Innovation Procurement Programme brings together innovators with procurers to exploit deep tech innovations through early market consultation and thematic procurement scouting activities. 

The EIC Community Talks and Trainings gather together EIC Community members for experience sharing and peer-learning workshops (including for the EIC beneficiaries at an earlier stage of innovation life cycle). 

The EIC International Trade Fairs and USA Soft Landing Programme 3.0 supports EIC beneficiaries to promote their commercialisation strategy in foreign markets and leverage business opportunities at the most popular trade fairs, strengthening the EU innovation brand around the world. The programme is running throughout 2024 and 2025, offering EIC beneficiaries the opportunity to attend 12 international trade fairs in different sectors across EU and four extra-EU markets.

The EIC Ecosystem Partnerships and Co-Investment Support Programme is expanding the EIC Business Acceleration Services by addressing two of the greatest challenges for its innovators: accessing specialized sector-focused services and attracting private investors.   

The EIC Tech to Market Programme brings together early-stage researchers and SMEs (Pathfinder and Transition beneficiaries) and offers them the tools to bring their innovation to the market by leveraging entrepreneurial skills and promoting early access to market and investment opportunities. 

The EIC Women Leadership Programme: Women-led companies are on the rise. The participation of women in deep tech is not only a matter of fairness but an important case of using Europe’s full potential of excellence in science and businesses. To further support the role of women in innovation and tech the European Innovation Council (EIC) is offering a skills enhancement and networking programme for women entrepreneurs and researchers supported by the EIC, the Women Leadership Programme (WLP).    

The EIC Coaching Programme: Get access to tailored coaching available throughout your project. Selected coaches are active in the community supporting regularly beneficiaries on business development, organisational development and finance.
