The Open Call for “EIC Solvers” programme

The Open Call for EIC Solvers is an exclusive opportunity for SMEs currently or previously funded by the European Innovation Council to test and pilot their innovation and develop a solution to a concrete challenge that exists in the public domain.

To apply, an EIC Solver must team up with a public organisation of their choice (Challenger), and propose both the challenge to be solved and the Solution to be developed.

The top 4 Challenger/Solver consortia for this Open Call for EIC Solvers will get selected to join a 10-month co-creation programme, supported by the InnoBuyer team.

  • Grants up to €55.000 for the EIC beneficiary 100% funded by the European Commission;
  • Funding up to €10.000 for the public organisation 100% funded by the European Commission;
  • Create real impact: tackle a concrete challenge in the public domain;
  • Work hands-on with a public organization of your choice during a 10-month co-creation period;
  • Understand how public organisations work and how their needs differ from the private sector;
  • Learn how your innovation could be tailored to fit the needs of a concrete challenge.
