Open call - EIC Innovation Discovery Training 2nd round

Fahimeh Mousavi

As part of the EIC Tech to Market Entrepreneurship Programme (EIC T2M), the European Innovation Council (EIC) invites EIC Pathfinder (former FET-Open and FET-Proactive) and EIC Transition beneficiaries to apply for the EIC Innovation Discovery Training 2nd round. The virtual initiative takes place on 26th and 30th June during two half-days (mornings). 

Are you interested in this opportunity?

Make sure to apply until 19th June 2023!



During two half-days, the EIC T2M Innovation Discovery Training aims to help researchers get a first idea of what it means to start a venture out of a scientific breakthrough. It will be based on a dual approach: an overview of important topics done by entrepreneurship experts combined with real life feedback from an entrepreneur, done in an interactive fashion.

This will help attendees understand all the important elements of a deep-tech pitch, and craft one for their project. This pitch will then be discussed in a collective coaching session, allowing attendees to get feedback from experts and other attendees.

The subjects covered will comprise business models, identifying customers, market sizing, Intellectual Property and funding. This will be followed by a talk from a science entrepreneur, Mr. Xavier Duportet, Co-founder and CEO of Eligo Bioscience, who has won number of awards, including French Innovator of the Year from the MIT Technology Review, the MIT TR35 award, the Forbes 30 Under 30 list, Young Global Leader from the WEF, and France Biotech’s Rising Star award.



The application for this initiative is open only to EIC Pathfinder (ex. FET-Open and FET-Proactive) and Transition beneficiaries. Several representatives of consortium/projects can apply separately. Please note that projects from all domains and sectors are welcome to apply.

The availability is limited, and participation will be reviewed based on application time (first come first served basis selection).
