Research and innovation universities’ projects, organisations and small to medium enterprises (SMEs) from third countries can apply to win grants of €3 to €4 million starting from March 1.

The news was shared by the European Innovation Council (EIC), which is part of the European University Association (EUA) and will be open to receive applications until May 4, 2022.

More specifically, research organisations, universities, SMEs from eligible countries, which includes the majority of third countries globally, will be eligible to apply for funding of EIC Pathfinder Scheme, which can offer about €3 million grants for individual applicants, while €4 million will be allocated to those that will tackle challenges related to innovation and research, as mentioned below.

The call for such applicants will open on June 15 and will expire on October 19 – with a fund of €167 to be distributed.

“In both cases, the majority of funding will be awarded through open calls with no predefined thematic priorities. Known as Open Funding, it is designed to enable support for any technologies and for innovations that cuts across different scientific, technological, sectoral or application fields or represent new combinations,” the press release issued by EUA reveals.

In addition, the EIC’s work program for 2022 has three major schemes as the following list shows:
