The EIC Tech to Market (T2M) is looking to establish dialogue and collaborations with organisations having the mission to support deep-tech researchers in developing their entrepreneurial experience. The aim is to exchange best practices and join forces to improve the overall set of training instruments in support of innovative researchers in Europe.
The EIC Tech to Market Programme offers a set of training services and tailored support to deep-tech researchers and innovators from projects funded under EIC Pathfinder and Transition funding schemes for the market deployment of their research results. The Programme builds on five different training components to build entrepreneurial skills, drive the academic vision towards market needs and stimulate the transition from the lab to market (“Innovation Discovery Training” and “Bootcamp for innovative researchers”), to help researchers starting the entrepreneurial journey exploring topics such as IP protection and regulatory framework, team management and access to finance (“EIC Pioneer Programme”), to ensure Business Model development and validation through Design Thinking methodologies (“Business Idea Validation Bootcamp” and “Business Validation Programme”).
There are other programmes in place at European level to boost entrepreneurial culture and attitude among scientists, researchers and innovators building entrepreneurial knowledge, skills and experience.
The scope of the EIC Tech to Market Peer Learning Workshop is to allow for a cross-fertilisation and exchange of programmes, approaches, practices and tools to improve the overall support to deep-tech innovators in connected European ecosystems and creating favourable conditions for the development of deep-tech entrepreneurship. The workshop will be a first step of a broader peer-learning process in view of enabling mutual learning and establishing collaborations.
