An information session on the EIC pilot Pathfinder (also known as FET Open and FET Proactive) 2019/20 calls for proposals for the following 6 call topics: FETOPEN-01-2018-2019-2020, FET Innovation Launchpad FETOPEN-03-2018-2019-2020, FETPROACT-EIC-05-2019 EIC, FETPROACT-EIC-06-2019, FETPROACT-EIC-07-2020, FETPROACT-EIC-08-2020 is organised by NCP Flanders and the Fund for Scientific Research (F.R.S.-FNRS).
The Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) programme lines that are also part of the European Innovation Council (EIC) pilot are also known as the EIC Pathfinder.
The EIC pilot was launched on 27th October 2017. The Enhanced European Innovation Council (EIC) pilot aims to support top-class innovators, start-ups, small companies and researchers with bright ideas that are radically different from existing products, services or business models, are highly risky and have the potential to scale up internationally.
Early-stage, science and technology research by interdisciplinary consortia exploring visionary ideas for radically new future technologies that challenge current paradigms and venture into the unknown. Open to research into any area of technology, it aims to attract new, high-potential research and innovation players.
Cutting edge-high-risk/ high reward research and innovation projects that aim to firmly establish the future potential of a new and promising demonstrate a new technological paradigm within a pre-defined scope.
The information session is organised to support researchers and applicants in the preparation of their application for an EIC pilot Pathfinder / FET Open and FET Proactive call.
