As soon as the buyers are selected, there will be calls for expression of interest to select innovative SMEs and start-ups (EIC beneficiaries from EIC Pathfinder, EIC Transition, EIC Accelerator, Seal of Excellence and Women Tech EU) to co-create (with the buyers) innovative solutions. These calls will be published, and applications will be possible through the Innobuyers Programme webpage: InnoBuyer – Fast track to innovation procurement
