In current times, making economies more sustainable and creating sustainable solutions for the likes of industry or transport, without harming further the environment is key. Given the EU’s goal of becoming the first climate-neutral continent, actions to reach this goal must be taken. That’s why the European Green Deal was put into place/action.


What’s at stake? Well, 1) have no net emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050, 2) have economic growth decoupled from resource use, and 3) leave no one and no business behind. All of this ensures the EU is transformed into a modern, resource-efficient, and competitive economy.


With that being said, it’s important to encourage and promote ambitious and innovative large-scale opportunities to ensure everyone does their part in achieving the necessary sustainability requirements. Hence why this EIC Investor Day is a valuable opportunity for selected EIC beneficiaries to pitch their innovations in front of jury members from top-class European investors in all Green Deal-related areas.


What’s on the agenda?

  • Environment & Climate Change
  • Renewable Energy & Cleantech
  • Precision farming & Sustainable food
  • Sustainable cities & Green mobility
  • Industrial Biotech & New materials


What’s in it for you?

This exclusive service will include specific training and is an excellent opportunity to exchange experiences with fellow EIC companies.


You will benefit from:

  • An ePitching opportunity in front of top European investors that have been specifically chosen based on your investment stage and topic.

  • One-to-One bilateral meetings between companies and investors.
