European Innovation Council (EIC)

The EIC is Europe’s flagship innovation programme to identify, develop and scale up breakthrough technologies and game changing innovations. Join us on the stand to connect with our experts and get information about the main strands of the programme.

During the two days of the Summit, our experts will be available on the physical stand to connect with you and share information: make sure to pass by to our stand during the scheduled coffee breaks to meet them.

On the stand you will be able to discover more about The European Innovation Council (EIC). This flagship innovation programme has been established with the aim of supporting game changing innovations throughout the lifecycle from early stage research, to proof of concept, technology transfer, and the financing and scale up of start-ups and SMEs.

The strategy and implementation of the EIC is steered by the EIC Board, which has independent members appointed from the world of innovation (entrepreneurs, researchers, investors, corporates and others from the innovation ecosystem).

The EIC and SME Executive Agency are responsible for supporting the EIC Board and its President, and for implementing the EIC’s activities which are set out in an annual EIC Work Programme.

The EIC takes a pro-active approach to managing funding under the leadership of EIC Programme Managers who develop visions for innovation and technology breakthroughs and steer portfolios of projects to achieve these goals. EIC Programme Managers have a high level of expertise in their field, and are recruited for limited time periods (up to 4 years) to design and oversee EIC funding in their portfolio areas.
