Oriana Baptista

The European Innovation Council (EIC) Business Acceleration Services and Safran invite EIC beneficiaries to apply to an online EIC Corporate Day on 15 and 16 March 2023. As one of the leaders in aerospace equipment, the corporate contributes to safer and more sustainable aviation. This specially designed service is meant to gear up collaboration with the company and forge new partnerships.


Make sure to APPLY until 20 January 2023!


Having a more sustainable business is something of great importance with each passing day. That’s where Safran, the French-based company, jumps in. Their main mission is to decarbonise aviation. With its ultra-wide portfolio of products, the corporate manages to equip all kinds of airplanes and helicopters everywhere in the world. 

EIC beneficiaries selected to attend the online EIC Corporate Day with Safran on 15 and 16 March 2023 will have access to specific training for pitching, pre-arranged meetings with top decision-makers from Safran, organised by the Safran Explore team, and the possibility to network with high-level partners and like-minded innovators in a dedicated online event. 


Who can apply? 

Safran is looking for globally scalable and sustainable solutions for its industry that help to mitigate climate change and increase circularity.  

Safran is looking for innovations in the following topics:  

Topic 1: Carbon capture solutions 

That means finding new solutions for processes which help capture the CO2 out of plants. The attention point is that CO2 there may be quite diluted.

Topic 2: Recycling 

That means finding new solutions to start collecting and recycling all valuable elements (e.g., rare earth elements for magnetics and alloys elements for electronics)


Opportunities for selected EIC beneficiaries

  • Privileged access to one of the world’s leading companies with the potential to initiate strategic partnerships along with increased visibility and possible access to new markets. 
  • Networking opportunities with relevant business counterparts based on your company profile. 
  • Personalised online training on pitching techniques and Safran specifications before the event. 
  • Services related to support before, during and after the event.
