EIC - The European Innovation Council
The European Innovation Council (EIC) is part of the European Commission's effort to give innovative companies better opportunities to become world-leading enterprises. The EIC pilot phase was launched on 27 October 2017 as part of the Horizon 2020 work programme 2018-20. The EIC pilot will be acting as a one-stop-shop for innovation funding. With a budget of € 2.7 billion for the next three years, the Commission expects to fund 1,000 projects. ICLEI supports partnership building between the EIC Community members and public procurers interested in working with EIC SME’s; and manages the onboarding of private and public procurers interested in working with innovators on the EIC Community Platform and motivate their active participation in the EIC Community.
