EIC Pathfinder supports early stage development of such future technologies (e.g. various activities at low Technology Readiness Levels 1-4), based on high-risk/high-gain science-towards-technology breakthrough research (including ‘deep-tech’). This research must provide the foundations of the technology you are envisioning. The EIC Pathfinder aims at creating breakthrough technologies by encouraging interdisciplinary collaboration. Diverse areas of R&I are brought together with different perspectives and methodologies. The support consists of a grant component of up to EUR 3 million for the open calls and EUR 4 million for the challenge calls. Successful applicants have access to a range of Business Acceleration Services.
